Battles, Hassles, Tantrums and Tears

Battles, Hassles, Tantrums and Tears

by Susan Beekman, Jeanne Holmes




Here's a strategy-packed guide for handling family conflicts creatively and effectively. Whatever the issue-bedtime, chores, sibling bickering-hands-on, family-tested solutions are here. Whether you're dealing with the public tantrum of a two-year-old, the defiance of a teen-ager late for curfew, or anything in between, this is the book you'll want to turn to.

With enlightening self-assessments that reveal your individual coping style for resolving conflict (Collaborating, Compromising, Accommodating, Avoiding, or Directing), plus tips for applying the authors' innovative problem-solving system to your own home, this book will help you handle old problems in new ways, tailor-made to you and to the needs of your family. With humor and the authority born of years of experience, the authors give many examples and practice sessions to try-they've been through it all and survived, and they show the reader how to do the same!

Together, they have taught children from preschool through high school for more than thirty years, and their conflict resolution workshops are popular with parents and teachers. They live with their families in Corvallis, Oregon.
