EP 05: Listen more than you talk. With Tosha Schore

It was a delight to be speaking with Tosha and to discover the work she does helping especially boys in our society to develop their emotional intelligence. I first discovered Tosha work when I interviewed Patty Wipfler, her mentor, for my Be the Best Parent You Can Be interview series. 

What we Talked About

Tosha shares her fascinating journey in discovering the importance of connection and empathy when parenting her boys, and how her need for support led her to the work she does today. 

She explains in detail 5 simple tools you can use immediately to meet your everyday parenting challenges which include:

  • The Listening Partnership
  • Special Time
  • Staylistening
  • Setting Limits
  • Playlistening

Things to Remember

"When their behaviors are off track, the goal is to reconnect with them. The reconnection will allow other shifts in behaviors. You can’t skip it!." -Tosha Schore
