Kids these days are super smart about video games and social media, but what about being relationally smart? Are your kids good with people?

Dr. John Trent shares five keys from his newest book, The Relationally Intelligent Child (co-authored with Dr. Dewey Wilson). Turns out IQ isn’t nearly as important as being relationally intelligent.  It’s never too late to help your child learn how to meaningful connect with others.

This conversation also shows you the power of a single parent to raise an emotionally smart child.  In this digital world where our kids are spending less time face to face with others, this episode is so important to hear.

Dr. John Trent has more than 20 books in print (including The Blessing) and he leads StrongFamilies.com alongside his daughter Kari Trent Stageberg.  Dr. Trent writes and speaks at retreats, conferences, to corporate America, in churches, and seminars across the country.  He and his wife Cynthia live in Scottsdale, Arizona and have two grown daughters.
