In this episode of the Where Parents Talk podcast, Lianne Castelino speaks to Luis Fernando Llosa, award-winning sportswriter, investigative reporter, editor, speaker, coach, father of 5 and author about his latest book, co-authored with Kim John Payne, called Emotionally Resilient Tweens and Teens.
“Kim [John Payne] and I had read through dozens and dozens of books on bullying, books by bullying experts. And through them all, what we noticed was that nobody was using the power of story. So in all these books, there was advice, there was direction, they were the do’s and don’ts. But what was missing was [story].
The best way for both parents and kids to learn how to navigate through and empower themselves when they’re in situations of social difficulty is by showing, not telling, and a story shows how things develop, and then resolve themselves. ”
