Today on Raising Adults, we discuss inviting feedback from our children. Join us as we talk about what this looks like in our homes and what it's like for someone who may have a hard time hearing feedback. How does this approach work? Be sure to tune in! "Feedback, when given well, should not alienate the receiver of the feedback, but should motivate them to perform better." - M.O., Manager, Fortune 500 Company “Don’t couch it in good and bad. We’re talking about what’s going well, and where are some areas I could grow? Or where are some areas that I could serve you better? The way that we frame this is really important.” - Kira Dorrian Today's highlights include:
