Q&A: Fairness, Getting Kids to Be Responsible & Calming Upset Students
Kirk answers 6 tough questions from parents and teachers in this lightning round format. As always, his strategies are practical, creative, and they work!
· How do we get kids to be more responsible for themselves (Kirk shares a great phrase every parent and teacher needs to master)?
· How can we get a student to collaborate/work well with others in class? Should we mark down if that child doesn’t participate?
· How do we calm an upset child instead of embarrassing the child and escalating the situation?
· How do you discipline and redirect a student without causing him to shut down?
· What about kids who get physical and have sensory issues?
Watch Your Tone! Calming Intense Kids.
Your child gets upset, lashes out, picks on her brother, and the family walks on eggshells around her. Then she beats herself up. Yelling won't work. But talking to her with a sweet, affirming tone will actually make it worse as well. So how can you use intensity and a different tone of voice to change these situations? While you can't control your child's behavior, you can always control your tone of voice. And it's more critical than you know.
Your kids are expert button-pushers. So how do you respond instead of react? A child yells at his mom, dad yells at the child, and then mom has to clean up the mess. Hubby feels criticized and checks out. Resentments build. Tonight when a tense situation or power struggle occurs, how can you turn this into an OPPORTUNITY to completely change your family?
Consequences for Lying & Bad Behavior: A Radically Different Approach
Your child lies, misbehaves, and does things that erode trust. Consequences won’t work. But THIS radically different approach will actually change your child’s behavior faster than anything else you’ve tried. Brave enough to listen and try it?
