We want our kids to learn to thrive in their relationships and become a blessing to their world. So, we bring to the show Dewey Wilson, co-author of The Relationally Intelligent Child to show the way. First, the Apple store is a place to see relational intelligence. Then Dewey shares 3 of the 5 elements that are essential to raising kids who thrive in relationships. Next Perry and Shawna talk about all 5 elements and how each build on the other. Then Dewey shares how he learned these elements in his family. And finally, we share some assessments your kids can take to set them up to have loving relationships and an assessment you can take to grow as well!
