Parenting. Does anyone else feel like raising kids is a dance that takes us on both sides of that line between internal and external control? Please comment below with your points to ponder or tips on parenting with choice theory.
I’d like to start the conversation with you choice theorists about chores and children:
Is allowance a ‘reward’ (disconnecting habit) or a natural consequence for following through with agreed upon responsibilities? And if they do not follow through on an agreed set of responsibilities or chores; is the withholding of allowance a punishment or a natural consequence?June 30, 2020 at 2:54 pm #28961
I have quite a bit of material that helps parents with how to work with their children. I have a year’s work of topics that provide a wide range of topics for parents on parenting skills. I also work through a small quiz which I have had for a few years now from a friend and colleague in Australia. She has written a few books and one is “How to Raise Good Kids” by Judith McFadden. Judy also wrote a fantastic book on weight loss called N.E.C.T.A.R.
I have also a wealth of material on parenting since I worked with a small school within our school district and met parents at least once a month, We reviewed topics on Quality Time; social contract with children; the differences between punishment and consequences, so many more topics. There was such a difference in outcomes regarding marks in that school and it worked so well in great harmony with Dr. Glasser’s ideas. So, I can share much with you.
