Whether you’re a parent, caregiver, teacher, clinician, or school or organizational leader, you know about the importance of talking with kids.

My work offers tools to make communication more open and authentic, which helps kids learn and relate better, reduces burnout, and creates positive dynamics in our families, classrooms, organizations, and schools.

The Art of Talking with Children

The Simple Keys to Nurturing Kindness, Creativity, and Confidence in Kids

What if the secrets to helping kids thrive were right in front of us—in our everyday conversations?

As a speech-language pathologist, Harvard lecturer, and mom of two kids, I’ve searched for the answers to how to enhance our conversations with kids.

I’ve talked to fellow parents, colleagues, psychologists, neuroscientists, counselors, and many others. And I’ve collected the insights of my work with kids and families over the past ten years, ranging from toddlers to graduate students.

My new book, The Art of Talking with Children, shows you my approach and reveals the secrets of how to help kids of all ages—from infants through adolescents—open up.
