Author Roma Khetarpal ("The 'Perfect' Parent: 5 Tools for Using Your Inner Perfection to Connect with Your Kids") shares simple and effective parenting tools for strengthening the parent/child connection. We talk about the easiest and most effective way to get your children to problem solve for themselves, the difference between guidelines and rules, the first step to take when a meltdown is coming (child's or parent's), the daily "Take 5" approach, and Ellie realizes she needs to wash her own mouth out with soap (verbal hygiene). In closing Roma reflects on what she has learned raising her children in America after being raised in Kuwait by her Indian parents. Roma Khetarpal's website is: www.toolsofgrowth.com
