Resolving Conflicts with Your Children

Here is a complimentary e-book that addresses the sort of damaging conflict that can occur between parent and child or teacher and student. It offers a ten-step, problem-solving intervention that can be used with a child or adolescent.

I wrote this 17-page e-book over the past weekend, while in the same “thought set” that prompted my previous post. More to come later, but check out this link, and feel free to pass it on:

  2. Great book – nice summary of a roadmap for a problem solving intervention with a child or adolescent. In addition, I believe it has great value even when applied to the larger, older children I encounter in the workplace. I particularly enjoyed the examples of speech.

    Finding the right words at the right time can be difficult, especially for those of us (myself included) for whom words are not our strength at the best of times. Within the context of parenting the primary impact of the problem often both creates desire for problem intervention and limits on our effectiveness during problem intervention. As such, I would benefit from a chapter in your e-book that provides a thorough discussion of reasonable limits on communication timing, environment, content and styles to enable effective engagement in such circumstances – possibly loosely based upon the contents of the following link ( ?

  3. Excellent feedback, Crispin. I thank you for them. I will keep them in mind as I work on the project.

    And thank you for your comments on this e-book.
