Managing Conflict with Your Teens

A quick 6 page course to help you get more positive outcomes from dealing with conflict

3. Become a master negotiator

From your list of Arguements you have recently had with your teen, choose 3 that you feel related to the most serious concerns

But before we do that, let’s talk about ‘natural consequences’. These are consequences that follow on naturally from the thing your teen has or hasn’t done. For example, if they haven’t completed homework, they may get a detention at school. Good news! When there is a natural consequence, it lets you off the hook! Remove those from your list! (Drop the rest for now, just focus on these)

What are your 3 most important concerns? Write these down.
