Whole Call: https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/08August/TSG_SC_8-5-20_WholeEdited.mp3 Question: My 5 year old son keeps hitting his 3 year old sister. I think it’s just because he gets annoyed, but I’d like it to stop. She can get in his business sometimes and ruin his toy set up and stuff. This is when it usually happens. I kind of feel like he’s justified and that the 3 year old needs to learn. But, I’m sure letting him hit isn’t a good way to teach either of them self-government. What would you suggest I do to handle this situation? Answer: https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/08August/TSG_SC_8-5-20_Q1.mp3 Pre-teach both about Accepting “no” answers and disagreeing appropriately. Then, correct them both, and praise them both. You may want to stay closer by for a while too, to catch them and help them disagree appropriately and learn to problem solve. Question: My daughter, age 16, is telling me she has social anxiety/depression. …

Whole Call: https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/08August/TSG_SC_8-19-20_WholeEdited.mp3 Question: I have a 17-year-old who has many issues that we are working on. My husband is incarcerated and I was in “survival mode” for a long time after his arrest. The kids had more screen time than I would have liked. Now I’ve worked hard with the younger kids to get back into a routine and with good structure/boundaries. I’ve scaled back my teen boys to 1 hour of screentime in the evenings after schoolwork is done. Like I said, my 17yo has many issues, including horrible, blatant disrespect. But the thing that’s driving me crazy right now is his inability to accept “no” for a video game. There’s a game he wants to play during computer time that I’ve given a firm “no” to – and I will not budge. So he mentions and whines about this game probably 50x a day. I’m not sure …

Whole Call: https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/07July/TSG_SC_7-8-20_WholeEdited.mp3 Question: Hello Nicholeen, My question is about dinner conversation. Our conversations used to revolve around our youngest acting out at dinner, ie crying, arguing, not eating, We recently implemented the 4 skills, and the Rule of Three with consequences. We also have a family vision and a family standard. Within less than a week, she was no longer acting out at dinner. Now there is very little conversation during meal times. We are eating breakfast and dinner all together every day. We have five children from 11-20 that are all at home. Do you have advice for how to spark and maintain conversation during meal times? Thank you! Answer: https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/07July/TSG_SC_7-8-20_Q1.mp3 Downs and the Ups game. Or, the what you’re grateful for that day game. Family conversation card game.

Whole Call: https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/07July/TSG_SC_7-29_20_WholeEdited.mp3 Question: Thank you for all the support you have offered in answering my questions on previous calls. I really appreciate being able to hear answers to my questions on the call recordings when I’m unable to be on the calls. One question I have wanted to ask as I have been working on the implementation course – how do I decide what an appropriate amount of privileges to offer kids in the day like screen time or snacks or time with friends (outside the pandemic) so that there is something they can lose if they lose privileges for 24 hours so they are more motivated to change if we get to the rule of three? We have five kids ages 7-15. Thank you! Answer: https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/07July/TSG_SC_7-29_20_Q1.mp3 Good question. Some parents tell me that their children don’t have any privileges to lose. That always worries me. There are …

Whole Call: https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/07July/TSG_SC_7-15-20_WholeEdited.mp3 Question: I am in the very baby beginning phase of starting TSG. I have only read the book and haven’t even sat the kids down to teach them the 4 basic instructions yet. But what I’ve been thinking about is our paid activities (like gymnastics, dance, horseback riding etc) and the loss of privileges. If their activity falls on a day they have lost their privilege do you make them miss it? The problem is that they are expensive and making them miss it means we are out that money so it’s a punishment for us. They are 9, 8, 6, and 4 so don’t really have enough money to cover it if they miss. Also, for team activities not being at practice is letting down the team and I believe going back on a commitment, but I also believe that the fact that they get …

This call covers: “McFarland USA” and character and strength. I need ideas for what to do in the summer months when it’s too hot to go outside to play (AZ).Also, my 11 year-old son is constantly reading and avoiding people and social situations, just like his dad. He has no friends and he reads things that aren’t necessarily of use. What do I do? I’ve found out that my 9 year-old son has been swearing at school, but when I ask him if he has, he denies it strongly. How do I help him see that this is wrong? I’m trying to help my 5 year-old son understand natural and synthetic consequences and roles. I’m having a hard time finding the right medication for my 7 year-old ADHD daughter. What she’s on now seems to be helping at school, but not at home. Suggestions?
