How can we help our children enlarge their circle of power?
In this video and accompanying article I’ll discuss three vital steps that help us as parents and teacher. When we use these three steps we’ll find that our children’s unconscious goal of power is met in a way that meets our children need to feel like they belong.

- By being apathetic?
- Or by asking for assistance in learning and practicing skills?
As your child builds new skills, what new responsibilities can she assume?
And, what, if any, new freedoms are earned?
