Control

Support Call 2-12-16

  • How to correct someone else's child when in a group.
  • Comparing points of certain psychology to TSG: what's right and what's a little off.
  • Helping my son become more attentive and less distracted.

Support Call 12-11-15

This call covers:

  • My 2-year-old son is very stubborn and strong-willed and he "pushes back" at me, but not at Dad. What do I do about this?
  • All of my children are dawdling through their chores and their school. How do I help them overcome that?

  • My 5-year-old son is great at telling me what to do when he earns an extra chore, but when he actually earns one, he goes completely out of control. What do I do?
  • My husband doesn't like to participate in family meetings. Is it possible to have meetings without Dad? Can we still have family unity?
  • My children don't like to redo things when they do something wrong. How do I help them participate in redoing a situation?
  • How many times can you go into the Rule of Three? My son keeps getting distracted and I'll start it, then he'll calm down. But three minutes later, we'll be back in the same place all over again. How does this work exactly?

What can you really control? ~ Happiness for everyone!
