Solving Common Family Problems: Five Essential Steps
In every family, there will be problems. No matter how patient and empathic parents try to be, kids will still argue and misbehave, and ask for more than they can have.

Often, there is a recurring problem. The problem may be getting ready for school in the morning, doing homework or going to bed at night. Over time, these common problems begin to erode the quality of our relationships with our children – and our own pleasure in being parents.

In this talk, I will present a pro-active plan for solving common family problems. I will discuss how parents can repair moments of anger and misunderstanding, strengthen feelings of joyfulness and pride, and replace frequent argument with appreciation and problem solving.
