Here is peek at what you will see in this workbook.
I spent a couple of weeks writing in this workbook and trying out the techniques. I have to say, it has made a HUGE difference in me and my kids. My kids feel validated and I am less stressed and angry. This summer has already proven to be a happy one all around. I am not perfect and I don't always implement what I have learned. We all have those days and that's ok. But for the most part as a family we are happier, my kids feel they can tell me what's really making them upset and know that I will listen.
That is HUGE in my book.
I love The Whole-Brain Child workbook so much that I have decided to give one copy away! This is for US residents only. Giveaway ends July 10th.
