You will wonder at times how she knew about you and a particular significant other because she seems to describe you and the relationship to a T. And, when you read the last page you will wish you had read it years and a number of relationships earlier.

I have read other books on this topic which spoke to me... This book, which I got in the Kindle version, pulled it all together for me--the biology, personal values, self identity, the human quest for belonging and intimacy. The book... brought to me great understanding. I wish I had ordered the paper version with the workbook. I ended up going back and ordering it.

“The Early Years: Building Relationship Skills in Early Childhood” - Sunday October 13, 1:30PM PST - LATalkLive

Today's Guest: Anita de la Puente, MA, Early Childhood Development Expert, Director of The Growing Place Child Development Center

Building relationships begins at birth. We come into this world as social beings and start learning how to navigate the world of relationships the minute we come out of the womb.  The world of relationships begins to expand exponentially once a child reaches the age of 3 or 4. This is the time that children learn how to build connections, resolve conflict, get their needs met, and become members of a larger social group. Join me and my guest Anita de la Puente as we explore how young children naturally build relationships and how you can help your young ones develop the skills needed to create successful relationships throughout their lifetime.  This topic is so important and one you won't want to miss. Remember, there is always something new to learn about yourself and others around you.

See you Sunday! 

About Anita:  Anita de la Puente is a Director at The Growing Place Child Development Center in Santa Monica where she has worked for almost 18 years.  Anita has her M. A. in Early Childhood Education and B.A. in Child & Adolescent Development. She is a member of NAEYC (National Association for the Education of Young Children) as well as (ACEI) Association for Childhood Education International. Anita has visited many early childhood centers and attended study group tours of high quality early childhood programs in California, New Mexico, Oregon, Illinois and Italy. Prior to her work at The Growing Place, Anita owned and operated her own childcare program in her home for 6 years while raising her two children.

Anita believes that all children are competent and capable in their own right and should be respected as any other human is respected. The role of adults in children’s lives is to introduce them to the world by exposing them to age appropriate learning environments where they can make meaning out of different experiences and become strong and thoughtful individuals in the process. Anita wishes for all children to have the opportunity to become deep thinkers by experiencing these thought provoking environments rather than by practicing skills to the test. For example, instead of teaching preschoolers to recite the ABC’s,  Anita would support children in learning the alphabet by beginning with something more personal and familiar to them such as the letters in their  own names and then those names in their families. Every young child is motivated to learn through what she knows about her relationships around her because they are meaningful. 

With regard to discipline and young children, Anita follows the idea that when adults treat children with the expectation that children have a role in the home or school, children are happy to be in that role even as early as 2-1/2!   At this age, children naturally want to be independent and they want to contribute. The other part of that idea is that they need to know that there is a plan. That is, when things are broken down into simple steps, they can comprehend, anticipate and know that something is coming. When this happens, they are much more likely to comply to an adult request. They will also learn to become great problem solvers and creative thinkers!

Together with these ideas and her experience, Anita is currently working on raising awareness for parents about the stages of early childhood and how to maximize their relationship with their child as well as maximize their child’s significant early childhood development for a becoming a lifelong learner and a passionate, caring and successful human being.

"Building Working Relationships in the Workplace" Sunday July 28, 1:30PM PST - LATalkLive

This week’s guest: Bob Ogilvy

Navigating relationships in the workplace can be difficult. There are individual personalities, group dynamics and organizational culture. Relationships are the primary source of joy and pain in the working environment. The job or task you are hired to do is relatively easy compared with the task of managing your business relationships. Remember, all relationships go through the same four phases of development whether they are your relationships at work or at home. Join me and my guest Bob Ogilvy as we explore how to build effective working relationships in the workplace (and what to do when you believe that is absolutely impossible). And by the way—you’ll quickly learn why we are the perfect pair to discuss this topic. See you Sunday!

About Bob: Bob Ogilvy's career has run the gamut from wayfaring wanderer to overachieving exec (wandering was more fun but the benefit package sucked).  He worked as a deejay, started a church, drove trucks, acted and did voice-work, got a master's degree and counseled at-risk teens, directed a non-profit, led cross-country adventure tours, and helped build (in succession) a billion-dollar theme park, a bio-plastics manufacturing plant, and a world-class hospital, in addition to wrangling horses and tangling with unions and alligators (alligators were easier).  Through it all, he kept his sense of humor, sharing the lessons he learned in his book "What I Know Now That I Wish I Knew Then: 22 Career Screw-ups to Help Turn Your Work Messes Into Successes". He created a system out of his adventures to help people discover what they are born to do and get paid to do it.  Check Bob out at www.whatbobknowsnow.com.

This week’s guests: Hugh Leonard, Workplace Ethics and Human Development Expert

Join us as we explore the role of relationships in contemporary lie and how easily self-knowledge can benefit and build your relationships.

About Hugh: Hugh Leonard is a Workplace Ethics and Human Development Expert and author of Interiority Powered.

He said inner energy empowers us to become the person we are called to be so we accomplish wholeness. The book, and the workshops upon which it is based, provide tools for workers to become aware they are a center of power. By exercising that power, balance can be created between corporate interests, ordinary workers, and the community at large. The majority of business books focus on improvement of business so profits increase, Interiority Powered focuses on development of the whole person as he/she engages with their tasks.

Leonard was born in Ireland, educated in the U.S., and “Made in Japan.” During his 17 years in Japan as a Catholic priest/missionary, he founded and directed an industrial counseling non-profit for management development, high-performance teamwork, and effective collaboration between multiple-cultures in the workplace. At the same time, he taught at two universities, produced a bi-weekly radio program, and wrote five books in Japanese on interpersonal communications.

His education includes Masters’ degrees in Asian Studies, Human Resource Development, Applied Theology, and Theology. He holds certifications in Executive Coaching from the Hudson Institute in Santa Barbara, and as a Spiritual Director from Stillpoint of Pasadena.
