The other day, I was texting with a lovable guy…
…(far more on that later, haha) and he had just sent me a backlink to a New York Instances article about how to talk with your kids. Here’s an excerpt of our dialogue, down below.
I also imagine excellent advice is to say the message more than and about
They say if you are operating a business, you have to say the information until eventually you are ill of it
Bc that’s when people commence to listen to it
And I sense like this w/my youngsters
Him: What do you have to repeat for your boys the most?
Me: “i’m the boss of my body” “you’re the boss of your body” “they’re the manager of their body” — we even have a toss pillow that states it! I (and each and every lady I know) has experienced strange stuff happen, so I want to educate consent early and typically.
“you are the wonderful joys of my existence, and there is practically nothing you could at any time do or say that would make me not really like you.”
(to which anton replied, “even rob a bank?” and i stated, “yes.” And he said, “bet.”)
Right after texting, I remembered that I’d read through the repetition suggestions in an job interview with Jeff Weiner, the executive chairman of Connected In:
“If you’re going to get a concept throughout to big audiences, you have to have to repeat oneself so usually that you get sick of hearing you say it, and only then will people today get started to internalize it… What’s that viewers member undertaking although you’re talking? Daydreaming, on their cellular phone, wondering about what they are going to have for dinner that night time. I mean, right? Everyone’s got tons of things heading on. Which is why you have to repeat your self over and around and about again… That is the electrical power of repetition.”
So! I am so curious: what’s the information you repeat over and about that you hope will sink in? “I adore you”? “Drink water”? “Stop antagonizing your brother”?!!! (That is a further one particular I say on repeat, haha.)
P.S. The greatest thing my mom ever did as a parent, and what are your core values?
