How to Raise A Successful Kid: The Difference Between Motivating and Pushing

We have all seen it. There is the parent on the {Insert your favorite sport here} field that is screaming and yelling at their child. Or you may have talked to the mom at your child’s practice and listen them go on about the laundry list of activities they are enrolled in – dance classes, karate, sports, after school clubs. It’s exhausting just listening to it, can you imagine how kids feel?

Extracurricular activities and sports are important for kids, but how much is too much?

I was honored to be invited to the Today Show again this past week, this time to talk about raising great kids and how to motivate (and not push) your kids to get involved.

Please watch and let me know what you think!
