Ron will present parents with the latest, realistic methods to: Lessen endless negotiating - balance a healthy 'voice' and hurtful entitlement; Set limits that are enforceable - and create strength in children at the same time; Help kids open up about what matters - so you can know them even better; Give advice to 'sophisticated' kids and teens - that can lessen social cruelty; Increase children's resilience - in an academically and socially challenging world; Lower child and family stress - when you're all running on empty; Create a community that nurtures - both kids and parents.
