CHILDREN WITH SOCIAL SKILLS AND CHARISMA AREN'T BORN THAT WAY. To be Charismatic takes charm and you can teach it.
We're not talking about popularity, manipulation, or vanity. We're talking about the true inner charm that cares about others. It will help them grow socially too.
If you model charm to your Children, they can learn it from you. There are 3 things all people want that come under the Umbrella of Attention. Give those to others and you'll have charisma.
Use Sincere Eyes, Smiles, and Words with:
- Approval by looking for the good in your children and telling them what you see.
- Appreciation for the good things they do. "Thank you for..." or "I like the fact that you..."
- Affection using a touch, hug, pat on the back, kind word, kiss, or whatever is appropriate.
This is called the Triple A Formula. It is the best way to give what your child and others crave and that is, Attention.
Be a great listener. Hear what your children are saying. See how they're acting. Then try to understand how they're thinking and feeling.
Don't tell. Ask.
"How are you feeling?" Again be a great listener and repeat in your own words what they said. Here's why:
Charismatic listeners help others feel a real connection with them.
You want that with others and, especially, with your children.
Use these 3 tips, Approval, Appreciation, and Affection, as you ask your children the 6 parenting discussion topics in the following YouTube video. They will help your children develop the social skills they need to become the charismatic leaders of tomorrow.
