My Three and Me
A Journey in Parenting by Design
By clearly defining and explaining the four personality types in the DISC Model of Human Behavior, Karen Wagnon has developed a useful guide for parents and educators that will provide anyone who works with children the necessary tools to identify common traits and apply skills to achieve positive results when working with youth. Utilizing personal stories of raising her “three”, she will share life stories along with “Tips and Insights” as to how to adapt your parenting style to meet the motivational/emotional needs of your children. The Personal Growth Action Plan will provide an opportunity for parents to reflect on their interactions with their children and develop new ways to engage and interact in a way that will reduce conflict and develop more positive relationships.
