Problem Solving Techniques in Child Rearing: A Training Script for Parents of Young Children.
Shure, Myrna B.; Spivack, George
Presented is a sequenced series of approximately 25 lessons designed to help mothers increase the interpersonal problem solving ability and behavioral adjustment of their 4- and 5-year-old children. It is explained that the program which takes 20 minutes per day over a 3 month period, combines an educational and preventive mental health approach. Initial games focus on developing specific language and attention skills. Subsequent lessons are designed to help children identify emotions; gather information about other people's feelings; and think in terms of options, causes and effects, and consequences in human relations. Each lesson lists materials needed and provides a narrative script for the mother. (CL)
