Connection: The Single Best Way to Connect with Kids

Leave a comment

To really connect with kids, it doesn’t take learning their music, being able to recite their latest slang words, wearing their type of clothes, or liking their heroes…and it certainly doesn’t take removing your tie. (If the tie thing is confusing, that’s exactly how I felt after I witnessed a very high ranking person in the DOJ remove his tie believing it was essential to connect with kids).

Watch today’s video as I share that story which left me feeling absolutely certain that we need to change our thinking when it comes to the best way to connect with kids.
