Remember that time when you just knew you were right and you were little.
How do you disagree with your parents appropriately?
During the heat of the moment the subject of the argument gets lost and as a parent we focus on the sass, anger, rudeness and sarcasm. But don’t you remember that sometimes you knew you were right, if only you knew how to disagree appropriately so your point was heard perhaps we’d have a discussion and I might be right or wrong but we had a discussion.
Today’s guest, Nicholeen Peck talks about how to effectively disagree appropriate in families so that everyone is heard, not that the children rule the family. She is the author of Parenting a House United Changing Children’s Hearts and Behavior by teaching self government.
Nicholeen is the mother of four and previous foster parent of many difficult and troubled teens. The Peck family’s success with these difficult children was based upon calmness, the principles of self-government, and good communication. She has been teaching people around the world the principles of Self-Government since 1999.
Plus some summertime conversation about what type of activities we did and how we got on.
