Whole call: CC Notes 2-10-2021 https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2021/02February/tsg-sc-2-9-21WHOLEedited.mp3 Question: I want peace. I want to do what is right. I have a weakness in discerning what to say and what not to say. To children and people in general. I don’t speak to people I don’t trust. I want to always be honest and try to be careful with peoples feeling about what I share. Sometimes I offend by being bold with what I am seeing and feeling. I want to be a person who doesn’t think I am better than others. When I am trying to bring truth to light I feel like I get lost on which details/truths to share. This happens a lot when my children ask me about their father. I try to give them basic answers or ask them to ask him. I know he will lie to them I have put off and some questions I …

Whole call: CC Notes 12-9-2020 https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/December/tsg-sc-12-9-20whole+editied.mp3 Question: Hello Nicholeen, We started Teaching Self-Government this summer. We have 5 children are 21-11 all at home. The oldest three are still complaining about things and saying disrespectful things. AN example is tonight my husband looked at our chore chart and said, “Who is on dishes tonight?” The older daughter angrily snapped “It’s me.” Since she is older, she doesn’t get consequences. When the 21 year old and 19 year old say things to their father, we don’t do anything about it. My husband and I talked it over with each other tonight, and decided that we will talk to them about being respectful and caring about each other. I’m not sure if it’s related, but the older four children don’t look forward to family time together, or have their mentor meetings. They do enjoy it when we do things, but don’t …

Whole call: CC Notes 12-23-2020 https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/December/tsg-sc-12-23WHOLEedited.mp3 Question: Can you explain the steps for using TSG for a 4yr old. He is quick to anger and call his siblings names, and at times doesn’t except a consequence calmly. Do we try 2 consequences like we do with the older kids? If he is angry and trying to hurt siblings, do we go straight to Calm down spot? What exactly is involved with the Calm Down spot? Is it timed? What happens if they come out as soon as you put them in before calm? Then after, do they receive the original consequence? What happens if they get angry again when you try to give a consequence? Any information about the calm down spot and dealing with an impulsive, quick to anger 4yr old would be so helpful. Answer: https://s3.amazonaws.com/1-SupportCalls/2020/December/tsg-sc-12-23-20Q1.mp3 Good question. This is what I suggest for 4 year olds. …
