Dr. Dan interviews his colleague and friend Dr. Susan Daniels about creativity, imagination, passion, and ultimately happiness — for ourselves and for our children. Dr. Daniels is co-founder and Educational Director of the Summit Center as well as Professor of Educational Psychology and Counseling at California State University – San Bernardino (http://summitcenter.us/about/professionals/drsusandaniels/). Her book Raising Creative Kids (co-written with Dr. Dan) is the go-to resource for cultivating the creative spirit at school and at home. (http://www.greatpotentialpress.com/raising-creative-kids)
In this podcast Dr. Dan and Dr. Daniels dig deep and discuss purpose, potential, and the “4 C’s” of creativity. Creativity is much more than coloring and crafting – it’s about invention, design, imagination and the support – even guidance – of parents with the ultimate payoff of a healthy and happy life. The episode ends with Dr. Daniels and her inspiring Parent Footprint moment about being a single parent and being present with her son.
