Every Monday at 11 am Eastern time, from September through May, Dr. Ross Greene and his co-host, Susy Portin, cover a wide range of topics related to behaviorally challenging kids in general and Dr. Greene's Collaborative & Proactive Solutions (CPS) model in particular. You can call into the program to get your questions answered or submit them via email here. And, if you can't listen live, all the programs are archived in the Listening Library on the Lives in the Balance website or through i-Tunes.
A lot of territory covered on today's program, including a discussion on the following question: If you're always collaborating with a kid and working toward mutually satisfactory solutions, won't the kid come to believe that he needs to meet expectations only when he feels like it?
If you're only paying attention to a child's challenging behavior, then modifying or medicating the behavior will make the most sense. But behavior is what's happening downstream. If you paddle upstream -- toward the problems that are causing the behavior -- other intervention strategies start to make a lot more sense.
I'm Modeling A New Image (IMANI) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, which assists in mentoring, inspiring and providing an overall enhancement to the quality of life for youth within the community. This wonderful organization is headed by Mr. Michael Gaines and his daughter, Esquita Gaines Shack.
For over 30 years, Michael Gaines has been an advocate for children and families in need of mental health services. His sound clinical practice has been recognized by the Office Of Juvenile Justice, the Department Of Children and Family Services, and Family Roads. Mr. Gaines is a Positive Parent Educator. He is certified in levels 2, 4 and 5 of the program, Triple P Positive Parenting.
Surrounded by the daily interactions of the mental health field, Esquita Gaines Shack started mentoring at a young age. By the time she left for Arkansas and returned for her first Summer Break, Ms. Shack began mentoring children with developmental disabilities. However, it wasn't until nearly 8 years later that Ms. Shack decided to pursue a career in Psychology. Today Esquita Shack works to keep children at risk of out home placement, inside their residence. She provides school interventions throughout the Greater East Baton Rouge Parish and she is certified in levels 2, 3, 4 and 5 of Triple P Positive Parenting.
And now, let's talk psychology with IMANI.
One of the questions parents frequently have relates to how much to tell kids about Plan B. That question -- and a whole bunch of others -- were discussed on today's program.
As usual, lots of questions answered and topics covered from the mailbag during today's program, including the one in the title.
Parenting is really hard, but it's especially hard if you're the parent of a child with social, emotional, and behavioral challenges. There's so much advice being thrown your way, a lot of it telling you to be more firm, more consistent, and more diligent with the rewards and punishments. If all those sticker charts, time-outs, screaming matches, arguments have you feeling like a lot of parents do -- isolated, frustrated, and desperate -- well, you've found a program that can help. On this program, Dr. Ross Greene -- author of The Explosive Child and originator of the Collaborative Problem Solving (CPS) approach -- helps parents understand challenging behavior and overcome many of the hurdles involved in implementing his model. It's very hard work...and this is a great opportunity to call in, ask questions, get the support you need, and or just listen to other parents or relatives who are dealing with similar real-life issues. The program airs every Monday at 11 am Eastern time from September through May. Sponsored by Dr. Greene's non-profit, Lives in the Balance (www.livesinthebalance.org).
