Guest educator Amy Phoenix of Presence Parenting joins Amy Bryant to discuss Collaborative Problem Solving as a viable alternative to punishment, power struggles and other not-much-fun parent-child interactions.
Whereas most parent-initiated problem solving and behavior modification attempts are unilateral (parent imposed – and often exhausting, especially when kids don’t respond how we’d like), Collaborative Problem Solving invites parents and children to find and implement mutually agreeable solutions to address unsolved problems and lagging skills. While this isn’t easy work, Collaborative Problem Solving reduces struggle as it builds strong relationships and problem solving skills.
