What You Will Learn:
- There is no such thing as a bad, lazy, or stupid child, although they can easily be turned into such
- There is no such thing as a child – or adult – who can’t learn new ways to self-regulate in a manner that promotes rather than constricts growth
- There is no such thing as a “fixed outcome”: trajectories can always be changed, at any point in the lifespan, if only we have the right knowledge and tools.
