This session identities the 5 main types of “Problem Parents” and demonstrates practical, essential skills you will use every day to handle conflict with confidence and calmness. Attendees are provided with tools and ideas to help develop an action plan that sets the foundation to building and repairing parent relationships while identifying the factors that enable “Problem Parents” to thrive.
