Arguing and fighting with kids over the same problems takes a lot of time and energy. Solving those problems takes less and works better.
Whether a kid is "behaviorally challenging" or not, collaboration is the key to solving problems, improving relationships, transforming lives, and teaching skills on the positive side of human nature...skills like empathy, appreciating how one's behavior is affecting others, resolving disagreements without conflict, taking another's perspective, and honsety.
This website connects you to a vast array of resources and links that can help you better understand kids and their occasional (or more frequent) behavioral challenges and implement the proven, research-based model of care -- now called Collaborative & Proactive Solutions -- Dr. Greene describes in his influential books Raising Human Beings, The Explosive Child, Lost at School, and Lost & Found.
The model was featured in Mother Jones magazine in August, 2015 and September, 2016. And you can find lots of free resources on the website of Dr. Greene's non-profit, Lives in the Balance...as well as trainings to take you even further.
