With short, easy-to-read chapters, loads of examples, and a practical, humorous style, Dr. Cartmell will show you, in a positive and encouraging way, how to teach your kids to be flexible thinkers. Help your kids replace the bad habits of arguing, badgering and complaining with the good habit of flexible thinking today!
