connecting with parents – ask the expert

i love 9 year old alec greven’s new books, “how to talk to dads” and “how to talk to moms.” he has so much wisdom!

alec says the main goal for his book is to get dads and kids closer together. alec’s last chapter is called, “the power of the father” and believes it is the most important chapter – in it he says, “a dad’s goal for you is to be proud, confident, happy and safe.. and your dad helps you become you, so don’t underestimate the power of the father.”

i love the idea of going straight to the experts – kids – in order to better understand how to connect and inspire parents.
