What to Do When You Need to Confront Your Child
So what about you and your needs as a parent? When do your thoughts and feelings get expressed? When and how do your needs and wants get the attention? According to the Behavior Window, you can feel completely free to send your own messages and pursue your own needs whenever your child is not owning the upset or problem, namely, in the No Problem Area and in the Parent Owns the Problem Area.

A major principle of P.E.T.(Parent Effectiveness Training) is that the effective parent is an assertive parent. She is direct and honest in her communication and action. this is different from being aggressive. the assertive parent values herself and her needs and takes the initiative for meeting those needs while still considering and respecting the needs of others. 

New P.E.T. classes are starting soon in Agoura Hills, CA; Irvine, CA; Pasadena, CA and San Diego, CA. View our P.E.T. workshop calendar to find leadership classes near you.
