Lesson 7. How to stop it before it starts

Thoughts and perceptions trigger the feelings of fear, inadequacy and anger which underlie the disrespectful, obnoxious and abusive behavior you want your child to learn how to manage more effectively.

In this lesson you will be given the tools to:

  • Describe the extent that children talk to themselves and the relationship between patterns of “self talk” and unacceptable behavior.
  • Identify the nature of “triggers” and how they will cause repetitive incidents of unacceptable behavior if your child doesn’t learn how to manage them.
  • Use an assessment process that will help your child learn how to manage the triggers they experience.
