Through lack of awareness, misguided intentions, self-interest, baggage, or just plain unhealthy values, parents can fail to consider the messages their attitudes and behaviours are sending to their children. And those who never pause to do so risk sending messages that interfere with their children's healthy development. "Your Children Are Listening" equips parents in two ways: First, it attunes them to the value of staying 'on message', helps them identify the messages that are most important to them, and illuminates the ways they convey those messages (and the ways children can misunderstand them). Second, parenting author, speaker, and expert Dr. Taylor shares his own nine essential messages to set children on the path to happy and well-adjusted adulthood. Dr. Taylor's nine positive messages focus on love, safety, competence, generosity, gratitude, environment, respect, responsibility, and emotions - each of which comes with fun, toddler-friendly catchphrases, rituals, and games parents can use to foster these values in their young children.
