Tonight for the first hour we will be joined by Parenting Expert, Marriage/Family Therapist and the Author of "Let's Color Your Feelings", Terry Basile.

Terry Basile has been a licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for over 25 years. She has also been a mental health program administrator for such programs as Head Start, First Five and Parent Education Network. Working with troubled teens and their parents she became aware that patterns of miscommunication often started as young children. She created the book Let’s Color Your Feelings ! to encourage a language between children 3-8 and adults of color and positive behaviors. Terry believes that an educated heart is the best parenting tool. She also writes a question and answer column in parenting magazine, Growing Up Chico which is also available online. She is currently writing a chapter book for pre-teens who face the challenge of being different.

Terry will offer strategies for healthy communication between adults and young children. Just as important as the food they choose to nurture their bodies, is the emotional food we give them to express their feelings. It is vital to a child’s emotional growth that adult caretakers teach how to share feelings in a healthy way and respond appropriately. Tantrums are not pretty on a young child but are disastrous on a teen. Listen in to learn how to use the strategies of her book Let’s Color Your Feelings! to engage children early and create a safe language of feelings in their family!
