When Your Kid Is A Fish

Updated: Apr 4, 2019

Albert Einstein once said: “Everybody is a genius, but if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it’s stupid.”

This episode of Big Better Best Books is for all us fishes out there. And all the fishes we know!

My guest this time is family therapist Anne Maxwell who has written a book called Would You Teach a Fish to Climb a Tree? Based on her work with kids and families for over 30 years, the book is a very different take on kids with ADD, ADHD, OCD, and autism - and what else is possible!

Join us to learn some tools for empowering and understanding kids (and adults) who function differently, hear Anne's stories of success, and find out how we can change things for the future by changing the way we interact with ... fishes.

Key takeaways:

  • Anne Maxwell, Gary Douglas, and Dr. Dain Heer wrote the book from different professional and experiential perspectives

  • What if there’s nothing wrong with these kids, what if they’re just different?

  • Whatever culture you’re in, there is a universal “fish”

  • Tools for parents to use with their kids

  • What if your job as a parent was to teach your kids to choose?
