Coach's Corner InterviewCoach’s Corner with Andrew Poretz — I met Andrew on a recent visit to New York, and he invited me on to his very popular show (he’s had Anthony Robbins on!). This was a really lively, fun chat — fun because Andrew really “gets it.” I love that he sees the relevance of Parenting for Peace for everyone, whether they’re parents or not. (He’s not.) At last count, the podcast of our interview had been downloaded 1,001 times! A great listen for the iPod in the car. Download




Marcy Axness PhD guest on Bryan Post inner circle callThe Law of Attraction in Parenting — Bryan Post, the master guru of parenting the “difficult-to-parent” child, welcomed me again as a guest expert to his Inner Circle’s monthly call-in gathering, and has given me permission to share this call with you. This is like a master class and parent coaching session all in one, with lots of practical guidelines and inspiring concepts! In the first 30 minutes Bryan breaks down and demystifies the so-called “law of attraction” in the context of parenting and concludes with an inspiring challenge for ALL parents. I then weave in the “growth or protection” theme from Parenting for Peace. And the work he does with one mom (beginning at 1:03:40 in the recording) around the issue of her child hitting her and being verbally abusive is freakin’ brilliant, and SO relevant to every parent!  Listen
