A family does best when there is a good deal of cooperation from all its members. However, cooperation isn't the same as blindly going along with every request. Parents have the challenging job of helping a child balance his or her own needs and safety with the need to be a cooperative member of the family. This course examines the spectrum of cooperation and noncompliance, from fearful cooperation to defiance, including the zone in the middle of the spectrum called self-assertion.

At the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • understand the differences between cooperation and noncompliance
  • list four cooperation and noncompliance myths
  • list four common reasons for cooperation problems
  • identify where a child's response to a request falls on the spectrum of cooperation and noncompliance
  • list general steps for helping children build their ability self-assert

This will really help me with our foster teenage daughter. This course is eye opening for me and showed me how I can alter my techniques to lessen chances of arguments while understanding her.
