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 to self-assert
