Human beings are relational creatures. Even in this age of ongoing digital distractions, we know that forming healthy relationships is an essential life skill. If it's important for us, it's all the more important for our kids-not just for their future success, but for their happiness right now. Adults and children alike are wired for relationships! John Trent and Dewey Wilson want to help you guide your kids toward thriving relationships with their friends and their world. Relational success doesn't just happen. It requires relational intelligence. We're born with the natural ability to learn, understand, and apply healthy relationship skills. Even with a background of broken relationships, we CAN learn and teach our children to make meaningful connections and effectively interact with others. As a parent, you're in the very best position to help your child develop them. When you model relational intelligence yourself, you'll start to see your kids pick up your cues. So give your kids a head start in life. Help them form good relationships, and you'll point them toward a successful future.
