Welcome to another episode of The Jews Next Dor! We have an incredible opportunity to talk to Rochelle Garfield, a speech-language pathologist, a dyslexia lecturer, and an author. She is also giving parenting courses and, in this episode, we will talk about her unusual and amazing parenting style.
Rochelle will provide some fascinating insights into the parenting style focused on positive communication, empathy, and respect, through techniques like “active listening” and “I-statements”. These techniques help children feel heard and empower them to solve problems on their own.
Discover how reflecting emotions and finding mutual understanding can transform family dynamics and shape children for life.
