‘Parenting isn’t for cowards’ is a very apt statement made by James Dobson years ago.  It requires a determination and commitment to up-skilling and keeping one step ahead.  The whole subject of the training of children is huge and in this brief session we can do no more than scratch the surface. However there are some very basic but powerful principles, which in general hold true for every situation. In this Workshop Joan’s goal is to give you a few tools for your parenting toolbox which will help you keep (or get) the reins of parenting and guard your enthusiasm for it.
