Creative Conflict Management Solution

Struggling with an area (such as transitions between homes)? One idea is to hold a practice (Saturday afternoon?) when the pressure is off. Parents have told us practice transitions between homes have worked wonders. 🏡 🚗 🚙 🏡 You could try this in real life or use paper dolls like this one found at http://www.billybear4kids.com/worksheets/start-paperdolls.html 

 

Instead of saying the child doesn’t want to go with the other parent because they cry, realize it’s the transition they have been taught to fear, not the parent. The fear has been gifted to them by their young empathetic hearts. They will mirror the fear you try to hide. Use your creative imagination to find ways to benefit your child. #sayyestolifeafterdivorce #tranquildiscipline #tranquildivorce #tranquilparenting #parenting #coparenting #divorce
