I love TED talks. They are so inspiring and help me see things from a different point of view. As parents, we all struggle from time to time with our children. These 8 TED talks can really encourage you, and help you as you strive to become a better parent:
1. How to Raise Successful Kids-Without Over-Parenting by Julie Lythcott-Haims
Parenting is not one of Julie’s passions, but she has amazing insight in teaching parents how to help children be successful without being over-bearing and controlling of what they do.
2. Conscious Parenting by Shefali Tsabary
This one is a great video that will walk you through the importance of positive parenting and how what we do as parents make impact on our children as adults.
3. Responsible parenting: Create memories, not expectations by Austeja Landsbergiene
Austeja explains well how we as parents should not force so many expectations on our children. I love that she touches on how important it is to create memories with our children.
4. Happiness 101- Teaching our children the habits of happiness by Erin Michelle Threlfall
In this video, Erin talks about how we can teach children to be happy no matter the circumstances and how being happy can help them in all aspects of life.
5. Building strong children by Ranbir Puar
Ranbir calmly gives great advice on how to help children grow up strong and confident in who they are. She also touches on why parents should help children feel loved and valued.
6. The secret to motivating your child by Jennifer Nacif
We all at some point struggle to help our children be motivated to get things done. Jennifer teaches parents how to individually tailor motivation tips to what a child.
7. Prepare Our Kids for Life, Not Standardized Tests by Ted Dintersmith
I love this video. I have yet to meet a parent…or teacher, that thinks standardized testing is a good idea. Ted talks about how it’s essential to teaching our kids life skills that will guide them through adulthood. Those skills aren’t taught in school, and definitely aren’t required knowledge for the standardized tests.
8. 5 connections that will change children’s lives by Laura Jana
Laura offers some eye-opening concepts on parenting and marketing tactics when it comes to children. It’s fun to listen to her ideas on what we should be doing to meet a child’s needs.
I love listening to TED talks as I clean the house, or while I’m in the car running errands. Which talks inspired you the most to try different parenting styles?
