Parent Toolbox - When-Then!

Are you ready to diffuse the power struggle in your home? The “When-Then” tool may be exactly what you need! You can use this tool when you want your child to do something, they do not want to do. The magic of When-Then is that it completely removes any amount of struggle and puts the responsibility on the child.


For example, “WHEN you've taken out the trash and finished your homework, THEN you can enjoy your 1 hour of technology time." This is not a reward because the "Then" is something they are already allowed to enjoy. Instead, you are simply controlling the order in which the activities get completed by giving your kids the less-desirable tasks first.


With this tool - everyone WINS!

Remember, perfect practice makes perfect!
