In part 2 of the Tell Me Why podcast episode on holistic psychology, Devika Mankani, Licensed Psychologist, discussed the importance of having conversations and communicating with children.

  • Anticipate conversations and developmental phases so your kids know they can approach you when need be, says Devika
  • Devika: Root causes of certain diagnoses can be nutritional deficiencies or environmental toxins that manifest in certain behaviors
  • It’s good for children to have different parenting styles as long as they don’t see a lot of unresolved conflict, says Devika
  • Devika: I use the ‘roses and thorns’ approach with my kids to give them a chance to share the good and the bad in their day
