Now revised for the first time since its initial publication, this groundbreaking guide will show you how to avoid being a permissive parent, how to listen so kids will talk to you and talk so kids will listen to you, how to teach your children to "own" their problems and to solve them, and how to use the "No-Lose" method to resolve conflicts.
Using the timeless methods of P.E.T. will have immediate results: less fighting, fewer tantrums and lies, no need for punishment. Whether you have a toddler striking out for independence or a teenager who has already started rebelling, you'll find P.E.T. a compassionate, effective way to instill responsibility and create a nurturing family environment in which your child will thrive.
P.E.T., or Parent Effectiveness Training, began almost forty years ago as the first national parent-training program to teach parents how to communicate more effectively with kids and offer step-by-step advice to resolving family conflicts so everybody wins. This beloved classic is the most studied, highly praised, and proven parenting program in the world--and it will work for you.
Now revised and updated, T.E.T. can mean the difference between an unproductive, disruptive classroom and a cooperative, productive environment in which students flourish and teachers feel rewarded.
You will learn:
• What to do when students give you problems
• How to talk so that students will listen
• How to resolve conflicts so no one loses and no one gets hurt
• How to best help students when they’re having a problem
• How to set classroom rules so that far less enforcement is necessary
• How to increase teaching and learning time
From the Trade Paperback edition.
Gordon is a psychologist who has pioneered internationally recognized effectiveness training programs widely used by teachers, parents, salesmen, managers, and other professionals. He has published six books that have sold over five million copies in 17 languages. In this work, he has enlisted the expertise of Edwards, a highly respected medical doctor and educator, to provide the necessary insider's view of the health profession. Together they make a convincing case for doctors to develop closer and more collaborative relationships with patients.
Deshalb hält Thomas Gordon es auch für sinnvoll, dass Lehrer und Eltern seine Analysen, Beispiele, Ratschläge und Hilfen für sich nutzen, denn beide Bereiche - Schule und Elternhaus sind als Erlebnis- und Einflusssphäre untrennbar verbunden.
Wie auch in der „Familienkonferenz“ packt Gordon die Probleme wieder sehr konkret an. Seine Vorschläge zur Lösung der vielfältigen Probleme sind praktikabel und schaffen die Voraussetzungen für ein angstfreies Lehren und Lernen miteinander.
Thomas Gordon, Autor des Klassikers "Familienkonferenz", weiß Rat: Die eigenen Gefühle zeigen, den Ärger und die Sorgen offenlegen und vor allem das Kind für die Mitwirkung an Kompromisslösungen gewinnen.
