Being the 'guide by the side' with your children is really hard. You are supporting them with making decisions and encouraging them to make choices and you don't want to be imposing your dreams on them. In this video I share an approach that I took with one of my kids that has been bearing fruit (so far).
Richard Shorter (AKA Non Perfect Dad) is back to help me celebrate 'Parents In Sport Week'.
I am also extremely excited to announce that Richard and I have created a new course called 'Conversations 4 Growth' which is designed to support parents to navigate the complexity of supporting and guiding young people through their sporting journey.
The course comprises of a series of conversations between Richard and myself exploring a challenging discussion topic facing parents interacting with sporting young people. It features...
Eleven-full length, in-depth videos of crucial conversations
Tried-and-tested advice that understands that every family, every situation is different
Forums to share and learn from other parents
132 ways to find better solutions for your parenting struggles
Bonus video covering how to get the most from the conversation videos
Here is a sneak preview of the course just to give you a sense of what we cover...

Richard Shorter has spent his life committed to supporting families to improve their communication and relationship dynamics. He set us www.non-perfectdad.co.uk to provide a space for sporting parents to help to navigate the dynamic world of sport for young people.
In this illuminating and energising conversation Richard unloads 20 years of knowledge about the challenges of parenting into an hour and a half conversation that is rich with valuable ideas!
Many of these ideas have been encapsulated in Richard's new book 'Conversations for the Journey - 40 ways to build sporting character' which can be purchased at his website using a special promo code especially for Talent Equation subscribers. Use the link below to get your discount.
The book has been really useful for me in the few short weeks that it has been in my possession so I can't recommend it highly enough.
Hope you enjoy our conversation as much as I did!!
