Are you constantly  under the gun? Are stress and worry consuming you?    We stress about money, work, family and health, but we don’t have to any more.

In this seminar, Tom is going to help you bring it down a notch.  You’ll begin with a personal reflection and then learn powerful techniques that will have you living a life of peace and harmony, not worry and fatigue.

Stressed, Overweight, Scared: A whole new generation of kids

Being a kid today is different than it used to be, and so is raising them.  Ipods, play stations and instant messaging have replaced kick-the-can and tag as the activities of choice.  Stress levels are through the roof.  Food is everywhere—and obesity is an epidemic

All of this is affecting the physical and mental health of our kids, and if we don’t do something about it now, our kids will be in big trouble later.  Whether you’re a parent, counselor or educator, this seminar is going to show you what you need to do in order to help your child live a healthy and happy life.

Drinking and Drugs:  What’s really happening out there?

In this 90 minute parent seminar, Tom gives parents an insider view of what’s really going on out there.  As a school counselor and therapist, Tom has seen and heard it all—directly from the kids.   Bottom line—kids are much more involved with drinking and drugs than parents think, and if you don’t believe it, then you had better attend this seminar.

In addition to the stories, statistics and experiences that he will share, Tom will also teach parents effective drug prevention strategies.

Character and Ethics:  Where have you gone?

What is character?  Think back to when you were a kid.  A phone call from the school was sure to bring serious consequences at home.  Using inappropriate language in front of an adult just might get your mouth washed out with soap.  And getting caught cheating on a test was sure to get you grounded for the rest of your life.  It’s not like that anymore, folks.

In this seminar, Tom brings adults back to reality, back to good old-fashioned parenting, back to good –old-fashioned character education.   It is up to us to impart genuine values and integrity upon our children.  It is up to us to hold them to a higher standard and to teach them responsibility.  If we don’t, then we’re sending our children the wrong message.
