Parenting Successful Teens

If you struggle with setting boundaries, you will go ballistic when you see your child not getting their fair share. You will be the parent that emails the coach or the principle to set things "right".

All your relationships are mirrors. But kids are extra cool ones because they are just so constantly right there, showing us where we still need to grow.

  • Annoying bosses ---> You can change jobs.

But having kids is an up-close, in-home, personal development workshop that runs 24/7.
