Resolve to Problem Solve

Looking for a New Year’s Resolution that you can keep and that will bring peace to your whole family in 2015?  Why not resolve to problem solve?  When your child asks for something, instead of automatically saying “no”, say “What’s up?.”  When you are dreading asking your child to do something, instead of threatening removal of a privilege, ask “What’s up?.”  Remember, a problem simply results when adults and children have unreconciled concerns.  Get both sets of concerns on the table and you are well on your way to a mutually satisfactory solution.  And a happy, healthy new year!
