Thank goodness for second chances! If no one gave me a second chance (in relationships, at work, etc.), I sometimes wonder where I would be. So, it’s always shocking to me how many people I meet don’t believe in second chances–at all.I find this especially common in parenting. When I met with families who were having parenting struggles, one common theme popped up again and again: many parents don’t give their children a second chance to prove _______(fill in the…Continue

This isn’t a blog about golf – I promise. So, non-golfers, please keep reading.
I was at a birthday party chatting with the teenage daughter of a colleague. We were having a lively discussion about golf and she was telling me that she had joined a league and was really enjoying it.
I was a little jealous because I know in my heart that doing the same would be one great way to improve my ailing handicap. OK – the truth is, I don’t even have…Continue

You won’t read any parenting book without reading the words, “testing boundaries.” I promise. It’s one of the parenting industry’s favorite phrases, and it refers to (usually) a child who is pushing his limits to see when Mom or Dad will stand their ground.
But, did you know we really NEVER outgrow the behavior? Even as adults, many of us push boundaries in our intimate relationships, friendships, and at work.…Continue
