An Interview with Jeff Copper of Attention Talk Radio

If you realize the challenge that emotions play in your or your child’s life, this is a show you won’t want to miss.

In this interview, Jeff Copper and I discuss the importance of practicing calm, and it’s benefits for you, and your child.

Calm really works. It is powerful. When we can first calm down, we can engage differently.
