Raising Girls Who Thrive With Dr. Michele Borba
For the first episode of the Girls That Create podcast, host Erin Prather Stafford welcomes author and internationally renowned educational psychologist Michele Borba, Ed.D., to discuss raising girls who thrive. Dr. Borba is the author of “Thrivers: The Surprising Reasons Why Some Kids Struggle and Others Shine.”
Listen to the full interview on Word of Mom Radio.
In this episode, Erin asks thoughtful questions about helping girls thrive, including:
- What advice do you have for parents who want to help their children realize what they’re interested in and what their talent might be? They want to help kids out but not by telling them. How do parents help guide their children to discovery?
- You have three important questions caregivers and parents should ask themselves:
*Who do you think your child is?
*Who does your child think they are?
*Who does your child want to become?
- Why should parents ask themselves these questions?
- How can parents and caregivers encourage the girls in their lives to use their voice and feel confident?
