Every parent is faced with the challenge of…
- Keeping conversations from turning into arguments
- Getting cooperation to get things done
- Having kids grow up to be good people
- Bringing fun into the house

Question for you: Which would you rather have a 15-minute conversation with your kids or a two-hour argument that leads to nowhere?
Silly question but how often are the arguments going on? How long do yours last? What are the results?
Now you have options to bring about a conversation versus the argument and it comes from this book.
Would you like a better relationship with your child? This is the workshop for you and your family. It also works in organizations such as nanny agencies and caregiving companies.
