Say Yes to No: The Importance of Self-Discipline

There is an epidemic of Discipline Deficit Disorder sweeping the country. The symptoms include disrespect, impatience, a need for instant gratification, a sense of entitlement, self centeredness, and out of control consumerism. This workshop, based on Dr. David Walsh’s new book, NO: Why Kids-of All Ages-Need to Hear It and Ways Parents Can Say It, explains how the “Yes culture” undermines our children’s self discipline, a trait that is the key ingredient for children’s success and happiness.

Mike offers down-to-earth advice that can be put into practice immediately and humorous anecdotes to illustrate central points, and give parents real, effective strategies for helping their children grow up happy and healthy. Audiences leave with the reminder that “No” is not the destination, it is the road to “Yes.”
