Abstract: What we believe (and think) powerfully affects how we experience our lives and our relationships with our children. In this session, we'll explore and evaluate several belief systems and identify what attitudes are likely to bring out the best in our
children -- and help us discover the best within ourselves. These ideas can be readily applied to the work environment as well.
