“We are more aware of negative things that trigger our partner and more open to seeing from each other’s point of view. We learned how to listen to each other, relate to how the other is feeling, and understand what they are trying to communicate.”

Inside the Lesson

In this episode, Parent Effectiveness Training master trainer Steve Emmons talk with podcast host, Noel Meador, about all things parenting. With over 40 years of training under his belt, Steve offers a fresh perspective on parenting in today’s society. In the past, parents essentially had two options for parenting: Exercise power and authority (i.e., you the parent are in charge) or be permissive (i.e., let your kids do whatever they want). But there is a third—and better!—way to get the job done: Parents and kids alike can get their needs met by adopting the innovative no-lose problem-solving method.

This method is both simple and practical; it operates under the philosophy that most conflict and problems are really fights over solutions. In response to this revelation, you will learn how to use “active listening” with your child, how to communicate in a way that is both bold and respectful, how to resolve conflict in a healthy manner, how to combat negative peer pressure, and much more. Whether your child is having behavioral issues or is the most well-behaved child on earth, there’s something in this episode for every parent.
