Honest Conversations

Paula Zhou

Description

Understanding how our language affects both our children and ourselves, opens an incredibly powerful gateway to nurturing authenticity and cultivating respect. In this talk, we will explore the potent effects that self-exploration and raw honesty have on our relationships and on the development of the adult that our children will become.
