2. Encouraging good behavior in your children and providing positive feedback
3. Strengthening your relationships with your children to reinforce the natural parent-child bond
You'll find tools to use in virtually every situation, as well as real-life stories from parents who have successfully navigated common parenting challenges such as reluctance to do chores, talking back, and refusing to go to bed or getting up in the middle of the night. For years, millions of parents from all over the world have used the award-winning 1-2-3 Magic program to help their children develop emotional intelligence, raise healthier, happier families, and put the fun back into parenting.

"'I'm at a Networking Event--Now What '" illustrates that today's social networking environments practically demand that you have at least some knowledge of effective networking practices in order to achieve the results most of us are looking for.

For some, this book will serve solely as a reminder, but for many, it will offer new valuable insights on what to do, and just as importantly, what not to do while you're out there working hard to maintain good standing within your social networks (on-line or otherwise), and striving to grow and nurture your own valuable social capital. You'll also learn why you might want to consider becoming a "pay it forward" focused person, as well as how to be more memorable. By the end of the book, you should feel empowered to take matters into your own hands and approach networking with a plan to achieve your goals.
