Connecting with Our Children

Dr. John Chirban has been a Professor at Harvard University for more than thirty years, a founding member of the Advisory Board and frequent guest of the Dr. Phil show. In this transparent and emotional interview Dr. Chirban discusses the importance of an authentic relationship with our kids and how to create one. Dealing with his own divorce and Solo Parent journey has made this issue very personal to him. In writing his latest book, Collateral Damage: Guiding and Protecting Your Child Through the Minefield of Divorce featuring a foreword by Dr. Phil McGraw, 10,000 parents and kids were interviewed about the effects of divorce. Dr. Chirban also shares some of his discoveries from his recent research, answering questions like: What are practical steps we can take to build a good relationship with our kids? And, what are some good ‘starting points’ to open authentic communication with our kids?

Dr. Chirban’s brand new book, “Collateral Damage: Guiding and Protecting Your Child Through the Minefield of Divorce” features a foreword by Dr. Phil McGraw, and is available everywhere. www.drchirban.com
