About the FREE Workshop

During this pandemic are you playing the role of employee, parent and now teacher? How is that working for you? Are behavior and anxiety issues escalating and interfering with your family dynamics? Do you have trouble communicating with your kids? We can help.

We have seen proven changes in behavior and anxiety within two weeks of doing this program.  Yes this book not only helps you talk to your kids it changes what they do and how they do it.

As an extra bonus, it helps in our communication and handling of what we do as an adult.

“I thought you gave a great presentation and answered questions well.  It is obvious that you have a deep well of knowledge and passion about your work and it shows in the presentation.

I have explored how I communicate and interact with my own family ever since.

Thanks, Don & Gina, for coming to our club and for all the help.”
