Overview

Healthy families need twelve basic skills to prevent or stop common family problems. The author developed these games to help parents and children have fun while learning to deal with negative family behavior. The problems fall away as the old habits of interaction are changed through the games.

Children learn social interactions by practicing every day in situations within their families. When they grow up to be parents, they use what they learned in their family of origin. In this way, new, more effective skills can be passed on to the next generation.

These games give parents a chance to improve family relationships and social interactions by teaching them how to --
-- be parents and let kids be kids
-- give kids tools for getting along
-- reduce sibling rivalry
-- get rid of whining and tantrums
-- stop interruptions
-- decrease arguing, backtalk, insults
-- increase family togetherness

Taking No for an Answer ... helps parents prevent common family problems before they happen or stop them if interaction is out of hand. Either way, parents and kids have fun!
