She will provide an interactive experience and discussion around the difference between statements that are enabling and those that are empowering. She will also share some simple ways to foster respect and cooperation by “drawing forth” from our children, which promotes intrinsic motivation. Everyone will walk away with a greater or renewed awareness and a set of tools to help motivate their children!
