Our aim is to share inspirational thoughts and discussions related to the role of a parent as an educator and guide, so we can support children to grow through the many challenges of life and to help them turn these challenges into moral victories. Through conversations with parents and teachers, we will learn from their lessons, and share how we, as parents, can plant and nurture the seed that will make a lasting impact towards our children's’ purpose.

    In this episode, we continue our reflection on Tact as we speak with Mojgan Tosif about how we communicate with our children. As parents, we need to remember what our role is - as a guide and counselor, not an authoritarian or a dictator. By recognising that our children are full of virtues in potential, we learn to nurture these by 'naming' the virtues rather than shaming the child.

    This week we reflect on the virtue of Tact. All of us may have the best of intentions, however, some of the words we use, and the timing of the conversation is the main difference between encouragement and discouragement. We either open the door or close it, sometimes forever. Let us reflect on what Tact means and how this impacts our lives, and our conversations with our children.

      Sympathy Pains

      Hosted by Laura Beil (Dr. Death, Bad Batch), Sympathy Pains is a six-part series from Neon Hum Media and iHeartRadio. For 20 years, Sarah Delashmit told people around her that she had cancer, muscular dystrophy, and other illnesses. She used a wheelchair and posted selfies from a hospital bed. She told friends and coworkers she was trapped in abusive relationships, or that she was the mother of children who had died. It was all a con. Sympathy was both her great need and her powerful weapon. But unlike most scams, she didn’t want people’s money. She was after something far more valuable.
