This is such a timely book, with over a year of at-home learning and social distancing because of a worldwide pandemic. Life is beginning to return to normal, but many people, kids especially, have suffered from the lack of face-to-face, in-person relationships.
We were created to be social beings, and with social media and the digital age, kids tend to 'socialize' via a screen. This doesn't feed the soul and spirit or prepare them for the future, when social behavior in the workplace and a successful family life (etc.) is so critical.
The Relationally Intelligent Child reveals five key elements in preparing our children. These elements help kids connect with people, become independent thinkers, be hopeful, empathetic, and helpful to others. It also encourages adults to be models for their children. Let them see your strong, healthy relationships so they can learn by example.
