It often seems that we're unprepared for the challenges of parenting. Where's the owner's manual? This webinar will clarify for you the fundamental approach for making sure you have a rock-solid relationship with your child regardless of the trials and tribulations you may encounter. We'll break down the most effective way to handle simple things like bedtime issues and eating preferences, and the more complex things like school, sports, and friends. This session will rely on the professional work of Dr. William Glasser and his book "Choice Theory."

You will learn:
• The basic needs of your child
• The Quality World your child strives for
• When to negotiate and when not to
• The two psychologies we have at our disposal

David will connect the key life skills of the lesson with winning on the field, and in life. The PowerPoint materials are loaded with practical information worth saving for future reference.
