New Challenges for Kids

Children come in all shapes and sizes, and with different types of personalities. When confronted with a problem, some kids are up for the opportunity to find a solution. Others hang back, afraid to look for an answer, fearing they will be wrong. What type of children do you find in your family? Maybe some of both.

So how do you foster the growth of the solution-oriented child?
How do you help him:
·         Define a problem?
·         Brain storm solutions?
·         Decide the best action to take?
·         Follow through with the plan?

What do you do with the child that just complains and wants you to fix the problem?
How do you help him:
·         Look at his dilemma in a positive way?
·         See that there are several solutions to his problem that could work?
·         Find fulfillment in working out his difficulty?
·         Feel good about himself as he finds resolution?

The answer to these questions and many others can be found in my new book, Family Talk, How to Organize Family Meetings to Solve Problems and Strengthen Relationships.

Praise for Family Talk
The Family Council Guidebook is a vital and necessary addition to every home. In this day and age when emails, chat rooms, and staring at computer screens are rapidly replacing real-time human interaction, what better corrective could there be than a guidebook to how to talk with one another in meaningful, productive and healing ways. Christy Monson knows what she is talking about. It is a great blessing that she is sharing it with all of us.
—Ben Bernstein, PhD, Author of Test Success! and A Teen's Guide to Success

This is a great holiday gift for all the families on your list. It's a lasting present that will help children reach their greatest potential—the gift of a lifetime.
