“There is no such thing as an unmotivated kid”
 – Dr. Shimi Kang
Raising Balanced Kids in an Unbalanced World
Technology overuse, junk food, bullying, social exclusion, and poor coping skills are just a few of the daily pressures on today’s parents. Anxiety, depression, sleep problems, and addiction are just a few of the concerning trends in kids.
How can parents raise balanced kids with healthy bodies, strong minds, and positive relationships in such an imbalanced world? Learn & practice research-backed techniques to increase your child’s (and your own) health, happiness, and achievement. Leave with a practical 4 part formula for motivation that can be applied to any situation.
