Conversations We All Should Have
Lou Scotti is a family and youth interaction specialist, educator, speaker and founder of Conversations We All Should Have. Lou believes that to live a good life, a person should learn to do something of value, very well and then use what has been learned to serve others. Lou noticed that there was no real programs that focused on the key factors in early childhood and youth which are responsible for success and happiness later in life. Lou wondered why these skills were not being formally and intentionally taught to families and individuals. Lou made it his mission to take the current success and happiness research and create an educational resource in a program/course that provides parents and families access to credible knowledge and methodology for practice and development of these skills. With there being a gap in this area and so many parents seeking a reliable source of knowledge and methodology for personal, family and child improvement Lou feels confident in his ability to contribute to the betterment of families and children. Conversations We All Should Have offers improvement of family, child and youth through learning and practicing developmental and experiential knowledge and skills. These skills provide the underlying support that buildup resiliency, protective, mental, emotional and behavioral factors that support success and happiness.

learn and improve through practice.
The present majority of success and well-being education is focused on crisis intervention. What Lou discovered is that Science and research clearly verifies that the way we interact early in life determines the quality of our relationships and success later in life. So Lou developed a course that improves how we relate and interact with each other and ourselves improving our thinking, emotions and behaviors developing patience, optimism, self esteem, emotional control and self regulation. Lou spent years researching and developing the program Conversations We All Should Have, diminishing the need for and reduces crisis intervention later.

WHAT WE DO
I establish the means and method for families and individuals to have all the conversations that are important for the success of each individual. We focus on the primary and most significant contributor to success and happiness, the way children learn to interact in childhood and youth. When families have conversations about certain topics often, children learn to interact with others and themselves. These interactive interpersonal and intra-personal skills allow for success and well-being in life. Most families and youth and individuals delay or never recognize the need to have certain conversations. The course Conversation We All Should Have is designed so that family’s youth and individuals can go through a simple workbook and have all the conversations that they need to have. These conversations establish a means to better develop knowledge and skills in regards to values, understanding emotions and how to express them productively and many other important topics as listed in the program outline.
