Problem Solving with Positive Discipline
As I have been going through the Positive Discipline Tool Cards on a weekly basis, I am starting to find my favorite tools. One of my favorite tools is family meetings. We have been using the Family Meeting Album which helps me stay organized and consistent. Problem Solving is a big part of each family meeting. I find it difficult to problem solve effectively during our hectic weeks, but on the weekend during our family meetings we have more time to brainstorm for solutions.
I have included a sample problem solving page from one of our family meetings. As you can see, it helps to have a format for finding solutions. My daughter Emma was our scribe and both the kids participated in brainstorming for solutions. The following week we followed up to see how the solution was working. Both the kids agreed that it was working and Emma wrote "A++".
