As a middle child with two older and two younger siblings, J.T. has accrued family mediation and observation skills, as well as communication and relationship development. This author has synthesized his own life experiences and knowledge about family and relationships with more experienced role models like Dr. Sears, Dr. Greene, Gary Chapman, and even Ross Campbell; the works of whom he has studied with a passion.
J.T. is well versed in detecting and neutralizing covert bullying, of all types, including simple techniques and solutions in dealing with such atrocious behaviors. He has found that most solutions are revealed by digging to the root of any problem, rather than covering up or dealing with only symptoms, and has discovered that the base of most family issues are either lack of empathy or poor communication.
Through his writing, J.T. will demonstrate how the branches of any given family tree may be ambiguous -- varying due to the uniqueness of each family, and analogous to different types of bark and leaves or residing animals and insects -- but overall, the roots are still roots in need of nutrient-rich soil, pure water, and plenty of life-giving sunlight! To J.T., the value of what kind of trees our future seeds will grow into are paramount in pertinence.
Personal experience in Fatherhood is rather new, but still has only affirmed what J.T. has already learned. With a wife, and daughter born in January of 2013, his knowledge and wisdom of children and family is ever growing.
