What can we learn from other cultures to help us raise kind humans? Leveraging her time spent researching three of the world’s most venerable communities - Maya families in Mexico, Inuit families above the Arctic Circle, and Hadzabe families in Tanzania, Dr. Doucleff observed that these cultures don’t have the same challenges with children that Western parents do. Most strikingly, parents build a relationship with their children that is vastly different from the one many Western parents develop—built on cooperation instead of control, trust instead of fear, and personalized needs instead of standardized development milestones. In this talk she will share practical tips learned from other cultures for building calm, confident and conflict-free parent-child relationships.
