Some of the most important relationships in our lives can also produce some of the most uncomfortable conversations and emotions. Why is that true? If you feel like a particular person brings out the worst in you, there’s probably a good reason. Would you like to know how to handle these situations in a more productive manner? Join us for this session so you can teach your children how to handle their buttons.

You will learn:
• How to separate the symptoms from the real issue
• What fears are compelling unhealthy words and behaviors
• How to keep it from happening in the future

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