People Skills Expert – How Her Skills Helped Her Raise a Teenager

What an great interview. Enlighting, inspiring and educational. Also a great reminder of how “unconditional love” is important for the growth of our children. Our 15 year old daughter is going through pretty tough situations right now…I have printed Dennis Coates’s recent white paper on the window of opportunity for growing in a responsible adult and asked her to read it when she recently got suspended from her school for some reprehensible comments on Facebook about a teacher. I also made her write a summary of it to make sure she read it and understood. Thank you for sharing it!
