My article (4.3 million reads and growing!) and Simon Sinek's video go hand in hand. We are disabling our children and setting them for failure in the real world. Children are not able to deal with the smallest obstacles on their way, but unfortunately life is full of obstacles. Start early! Join my parenting groups and get tools essential for preparing children for real life, not for an artificial reality!
Moment of fame! I was invited by Canadian-Russian RTVi TV channel to appear on the program "All about your health", hosted by Dr. Levitin. Below is the recording of the first show (in Russian). It contains a lot of useful information for parents! Part 2 will be aired this Saturday.
Spoiling and loving are two words that have opposite meanings. Unfortunately, many think that loving means spoiling. By spoiling our children, we are not 'just' spoiling them. We are spoiling their brains. With our greatest intentions to make them happy, we make them happy in the moment, but miserable in the long run.

To fill a child's cup doesn't mean to get him the most expensive toy. It doesn't mean to buy him another pair of his favorite shoes. All children need to fill their cups are not 'things', but emotional connectedness to their parents. Their needs are simple and absolutely free, but are in short supply in today's high-tech world. Unplug yourself from devices and connect to your kids. Surprise them with flowers, tickle them, put a love note in the lunch box, dance together, crawl together, read together, have pillow fights, have family dinners with candles, relax together next to a fireplace and share stories, and simply tell your child 'I love you'. Flowers don't grow without water, children don't grow without love!
