How to Talk to Your Child: The Best Strategies for Effective Communication

This is a show about how parents can talk to their children. It may seem obvious; however we often shut our children down and end up in a constant loop of saying the same thing over and over. That's not talking, or more importantly, not listening. Our experts help us see how we talk to our kids and how we can do it better. For more from

Maximizing Your Child's Potential: Healthy Brain Development in a Media Age (full feature)

Mona Locke, former First Lady of the State of Washington narrates this video written and produced by Gloria DeGaetano, founder of the Parent Coaching Institute. Parents will learn ways to understand how too much media affects children's brain development and receive simple yet powerful suggestions for helping kids spend more time in play/movement activities, literacy development, and mental challenges in the 3-D world. Watch the video and be inspired by what parents say who made these easy changes! We're a stalled society—not where technology is concerned, of course. The devices continue to grow and improve. Technological society seems sound and doing well, headed for more Siri-type know-it-alls, VR, and embedded chips. But what about the people using the technology? How are we doing? Are we growing and improving as humans, alongside technology's progress? --Gloria DeGaetano, Information and Wisdom—Important Distinctions for Successful Digital-Age Parenting, Monday, October 22, 2012, Parents doing their best are not totally responsible for violent children. Many moms and dads are confused about the appropriate developmental needs of children. It is very, very difficult for some moms and dads to obtain and implement this critical information and more difficult even yet, to implement in daily parenting decisions. --Gloria DeGaetano, Parents are Not Always Responsible for Violent Children, Thursday, October 18, 2012, Recently there was an interesting dialogue in the New York Times about whether moms and dads were practicing sound parenting when they stay involved with their children's social media or were they really just "snooping?" Snooping implies covert action and hidden agendas—gutter-like behaviors loving parents avoid. Mainstream media usually serves this issue on a tidy plate as an either/or—(either you are snooping or you're not). The issue is more complex and more nuanced. Gloria DeGaetano, Message to Corporations: You Don't Own Our Children, Tuesday, July 3, 2012, Which Do You Believe? In 2020 the brains of multitasking teens and young adults are "wired" differently from those over age 35 and overall it yields helpful results. They do not suffer notable cognitive shortcomings as they multitask and cycle quickly through personal- and work-related tasks. Rather, they are learning more and they are more adept at finding answers to deep questions, in part because they can search effectively and access collective intelligence via the internet. In sum, the changes in learning behavior and cognition among the young generally produce positive outcomes. OR In 2020, the brains of multitasking teens and young adults are "wired" differently from those over age 35 and overall it yields baleful results. They do not retain information; they spend most of their energy sharing short social messages, being entertained, and being distracted away from deep engagement with people and knowledge. They lack deep-thinking capabilities; they lack face-to-face social skills; they depend in unhealthy ways on the internet and mobile devices to function. In sum, the changes in behavior and cognition among the young are generally negative outcomes.

You: A parent or grandparent worried about the children you love because the devices seem to have taken up too much space and no room for life—the life you would like for these precious children of yours. Me: Well, as a mom of kids, now thriving adults, I have been around the block more than once. I know the struggles. And I also know that our hard work and sacrifices are so worth our efforts. As a professional, I have helped thousands of parents find a clear pathway out of media/digital muddles. Since 1987 I have supported moms and dads to wisely manage the "screen machines" in their families. It brings me great joy and satisfaction to do this. Many burdens can be lifted, problems prevented, struggles streamlined, and a full life re-discovered. It's not always easy, but it's definitely possible.
