Do you ever feel frustrated with your child? Find yourself shouting often and imposing punishments or rewards in reaction to challenging behavior? Do you wish you had a more effective parenting approach that also helps to build a better relationship between you and your child?
The Think:Kids Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) approach, based in MGH's Department of Psychiatry, provides parents with concrete tools to better understand and parent their kids in the face of day-to-day challenges – e.g., getting to school, homework, bedtime, screen time – and more serious challenges.
It’s based on the understanding that many kids lack the skill, not the will, to behave well – specifically skills related to problem solving, flexibility and frustration tolerance.
Collaborative Problem Solving helps parents to:
- Shift their thinking and approach to foster positive relationships with their child
- Reduce their child’s challenging behavior
- Build their child's self-regulation, communication and problem-solving skills
- Solve problems collaboratively and proactively
