Mike and Mark,
I need to share this story, and I hope it makes you smile. I have practiced delivering feedback with my kids (girl 10 and boy 7) - and do it with complete sincerity. For example, it may sound like, "Hannah, can I give you some feedback? When you forget to clean your room, it creates work for your Mom or I because we have to remind you. How could you handle it differently in the future?" And it works! Plus it helped me become accustomed to the pattern and delivery so it feels more natural.
Kids do pay attention though, because the other night at dinner, I was pontificating about some news of the day. Then with a beautiful smiling face, my daughter begins, "Dad, can I give you some feedback..." She nailed it, my little manager! I'm so proud.
Just had to share. And also thinking how much MT guidance is adaptable to parenting. Parent Tools, perhaps?
Thanks for your service.
