Raising Emotionally and Socially Healthy Kids with Eileen Kennedy – Moore

Does your child get picked on at school?  Does your child hurt other children?  It breaks a parent’s heart when their child is called names or emotionally hurt by other children.  Raising socially and emotionally healthy kids can be a challenge in today’s world.  The digital age can make it even more of a challenge.

Dr. Eileen Kennedy-Moore has produced a CD/Digital series, “Raising Emotionally and Socially Healthy Kids” that will help all parents learn how to help their children regulate their emotions.  When children can regulate their emotions, they are on their way to becoming a productive member of society.  In my latest podcast, I did an interview with Dr. Eileen Kennedy-Moore on my podcast series, “Smart Choices for a Happier Family Life,” Dr. Eileen Kennedy-Moore states, “Kids do not learn through suffering; they learn through doing it right.”  Parents, teach your children how to do it right.

Dr. Kennedy Moore is an author, psychologist and most importantly a mother of four.  She specializes in friendships and children’s feelings.  She has a B.A. in psychology from Northwestern University and Ph.D. in clinical psychology from Stony Brook University.  She is the co-author of two parenting books, “Smart Parenting for Smart Kids: Nurturing Your Child’s True Potential and The Unwritten Rules of Friendship: Simple Strategies to Help Your Child Make Friends,”and as well as an award-winning children’s book, What About Me? 12 Ways to Get Your Parent’s Attention (Without Hitting Your Sister).  She is a terrific guest!  You don’t want to miss it.
