Creating new behavior patterns take practice.
If you implement the Art of the Re-Do, I promise you’ll feel a difference and be on the path to creating sustainable change in your family.

Whenever that moment of realization comes and you don’t like what’s happening, STOP IT! I mean literally and physically stop moving. Stop speaking. Stop everything.
