Value and Benefit Solutions
When your child is pushing back and all you want to do is help them get all A's -
use those A's!
#1 Struggling with school assignments.
Say: Looks like you have a lot of work to do. What can I do to support you? Rather than "help". It allows kids to choose to succeed on their own terms.
#2 Negative talk and blaming others.
Say: I see you are upset/hurt/
frustrated/_______. What would you like to choose here and how can I contribute? This allows kids the experience of expressing their needs.
#3 Taking out anger on others.
Say: It's not ok to take out your frustration on your (family member). What would it look like to make a different choice? This sets a parental boundary and acknowledges it's ok to make a mistake and take responsibility for it.
Acknowledge, Ask, and Allow
your child to make their own choice even if it creates a consequence.
