Course Overview:

Parenting or teaching a strong-willed child can be a challenge on even the best of days. The way they respond to the world and to you is different from that of most other children. And the techniques you use to reach other children don't work on them or worse, backfire completely. The way to reach them is not to break their will but to channel it so that it becomes an asset to them as they grow older. In this course we will explore various approaches to working with these challenging children that also work great on the less challenging ones.

ATTENTION: This course has a strict start and end date.  When a student enrolls into this course, they will need to work with one of our Training Assessment Managers (TAMs) to choose a start date before they can be enrolled in their course.
