From Centre Court at Wimbledon to head tennis coach at BYU, Brad Pearce has won plenty of matches. His most important victories, however, have come as he’s watched his children become successful. Now he shares his wisdom in lessons that apply on and off the court. Perfect for parents who want to up their game and help their children reach their true potential!
Brad Pearce shows how the same goal-setting process that helped him launch a pro tennis career and ultimately to play in the final four on Centre Court at Wimbledon can work in the life of any determined athlete, scholar, artist, or musician. Pearce teaches parents how to use “The Principle of Alignment” to help their children succeed at choosing their own worthwhile goals. Once a child or teen has chosen a goal that is important to him or her, Pearce teaches parents how to support and encourage without coercion. As teens work toward the achievements they have chosen to focus on, parents become alignment support specialists who help a child stay on track. When behavior isn’t in line with the hoped-for outcome, parents help the child or teen see that he or she has two choices: change the goal or change the behavior.
This simple, down-to-earth approach takes the battle out of parenting and helps parents and children work as a team toward success in school, in extracurricular activities, and in everything else that is important in life.
