Getting to Yes tells you how to:

  • Separate the people from
    the problem;
  • Focus on interest not
    positions;
  • Work together to create
    options that will satisfy both
    parties; and
  • Negotiate successfully with
    people who are more
    powerful, refuse to play by
    the rules, or resort to "dirty
    tricks".

that supports your vision for
your child.
