    One thought on “Raising Human Beings: Creating a Collaborative Partnership with Your Child”

    1. #2106-aty-reading challenge--week-19: a non-fiction book. I thought this was an excellent book on parenting skills--resolving problems with collaboration and teaching empathy and appreciation for another's point of view. Oh, if these skills could only be applied to the world at large, most especially the political arena!Dr Greene lays out a three-step program for problem-solving in a collaborative partnership with your child, gives several examples, answers questions and gives advice about overc [...]

    2. It's like this book was written for me! At first I thought he was making it sound too easy and kept asking myself "How am I ever going to do this?" In the heat of the moment it's so easy to count to 5 or threaten "no cartoons!" Or "I'll take your legos away" Or beg and plead to get out of the house on time. None of those approaches solves the problem in a way that's mutually satisfactory. The author is clear that collaborative parenting is NOT living in "Pushover Provinces" just because it's not [...]

    3. I highly recommend this book. It would make a great gift for parents with children of any age – but the younger the better. It’s easier to instill a sound pattern of parenting when the kids are young; although, this book does offer excellent examples of changing parental styles even when the kids are teenagers.Over the years, I’ve read quite a few parenting books, and one of the things I’ve learned is: you do not have to agree with every single bit of advice offered within the pages. Tak [...]

    4. Read my full review here: mimi-cyberlibrarian.c At a family picnic the other day, my granddaughter (age 5) was having a hard time focusing on eating her dinner. There was a lot of food on her plate, and she had touched none of it. My daughter said to her, "I think that you have two options here: one option is to just sit here staring at your plate until the picnic is over. The other option is to come up with a solution with me about how much you need to eat and then eat that amount so that you c [...]

    5. I liked the style of writing Dr. Greene has. He presents information and the reasons for his suggestions, he gives real-life dialogue and scenarios, and he also includes a sort of FAQ about each chapter's topics. I like that he addresses each concept with this detailed attention to suit many different styles of learning. I found myself drawn to the real-life situations and narratives and admiring how each situation unfolded rather than the question and answer portion (which I found more critical [...]

    6. As I ponder what to say about this book, I'm reminded of two quotes I like from another, Difficult Conversations by Douglas Stone:People almost never change without first feeling understood.The single most important thing [you can do] is to shift [your] internal stance from "I understand" to "Help me understand." Everything else follows from that.Though stated differently, those ideas lie at the core of the parenting approach Greene describes in this book. Parents can best help their children le [...]

    7. I received an ARC of this book via NetGalley.I usually don't read expository nonfiction like this. The title caught my eye, and I thought that reading it might give me some insight into parenting as well as teaching. I was not disappointed, and I'm glad I read this book. I think this will be a book that I will recommend to parents who seriously seek to build better relationships with their kids.For me, a lot of this book was a welcome affirmation for my style of parenting and teaching. When I fi [...]

    8. Excellent read and great way of raising your children.The whole book is centered around one particular (great!) idea, so it does repeat itself several times.However, the idea is so sound that I didn't really mind that much. It has completely changed my idea of raising the kids and for that I owe mr. Greene 5 stars.

    9. This may just be my favorite Ross Greene book! Not only does he give parents the much needed perspective we need on a daily basis to choose wisely how we encourage, motivate, and raise kids we want to live with. He stops and explains how to think about meeting your child's needs, he has LOTS of practical examples and tips on collaboratively working together to develop skills like empathy honesty, cooperation, seeing other people's perspective, He really is thinking about the world we live in an [...]

    10. There are a million parenting books out there and I've only read a handful of them, to be honest. And most of the time they sound good while I'm reading them, but as soon as I put the book down it's out of my head. This one is not like that. Greene has put together a book that is so practical it sounds ludicrous, but I know that it will be a parenting technique I use for the rest of my life. You see, Greene has put together a how-to for parents, knowing that so many parenting books promise to gi [...]

    11. Raising Human Beings: Creating a Collaborative Partnership with Your Child by Ross W. Greene is a free NetGalley ebook that I read in early July.Terrific, but far too short; it's more of a handbook than the resource manual that it should be. Greene's mix of simulated dialogue, anticipated questions, mockup case studies, and easy to follow developmental research essays fit this topic to a tee.

    12. *A child's most important task is to figure out who he/she is (skills, beliefs, goals, etc.), then pursue a life congruent with it. A parent's most important job is to help the child with this task by sharing wisdom and experience.*When there's a mismatch between the expectations placed on a child and the child's ability to meet those expectations, problem behaviors arise. *Traditional methods of discipline, which focus on behaviors only and are based on power and control, aren't necessarily eff [...]

    13. The book largely involves describing and working through the possible plans for parenting (text below from Joanna's review)Plan A: Our common default as parents, directive and punitive, solving problems for our kids. Author argues we need to steer away from Plan A.Plan B: The collaborative approach using empathy, appreciating how one's actions are affecting others, resolving disagreements in ways that do not cause conflict, taking another's perspective, and being honest.Plan C: defer unsolved pr [...]

    14. The only parenting book anyone needs to read. Hands down. I was introduced to Greene a couple of years ago. While that book focused on kids with more explosive personalities, this book focuses on all kids and how to use problem solving instead of 'parenting' when interacting with kids (my words). It's the same method in both books, but he takes more time to give examples and demonstrate how the problem solving method is applied to everyday situations. Even if you already have a great relationshi [...]

    15. Laughably bad. I finished the book so I will save you from wasting your time with this summary. Kids do well if they can. If they can’t, use a chirpy voice and ask them “what’s up?” Example:“Hey I noticed you’re having trouble doing homework after school. What’s up?”At this point your child will open up to you because he (or she) realizes how much you care about him (or her) and his (or her) concerns. You will both come to a mutually agreeable answer without sweeping unilateral s [...]

    16. Raising Human Beings is another good book by Dr. Greene that provides concrete and effective 'ground rules' to help turn confrontation into collaboration. It's a great tool that challenges traditional approaches to discipline. How many people do you know that don't know how to express themselves in an effective and constructive manner? Perhaps if Dr. Greene's method is implemented from early on the communication and conflict resolution skills will become second-nature? A world full of mindful ad [...]

    17. "Alright Stop, Collaborate, and Listen"Who woulda thunk it? Vanilla Ice was actually on to somethingy instead of music, it was parenting. This is the best, and most logical approach to parenting I've ever readd the basics agree with me on a deeper human level I am so pleased to have found this gem. The process works well beyond parentingd can inform any dust up life throws our way I can't recommend this tremendous book any higher. The best of the best!

    18. Read the book, don’t listen to it. Every q&a section is read aloud very slowly with each line differentiated between the person talking. Infuriating. The insights of the book were pretty good though. Many of the strategies like getting to the root of the problem are very helpful. It’s a lot of talking and very slow progress though, but I do think his ideas will serve the child much better later in life.

    19. I am not sure how I feel about this. the theory sounds solid but working application is always different. Have had much success with 123 magic but can see how that won't apply to all ages. Am will to put effort into it and see if it work with two types of parenting in the home. However it reads like stereo instructions with parent said this and kid said that scenario it was hard to make it through.

    20. Really great approach to child-rearing. As a school social worker, I've used Ross Greene's CPS (Collaborative Problem-Solving) model with students and their families with significant social/emotional/behavioral difficulties. This book is geared more towards typical-developing children & teens. The language, writing and examples are very digestible and easy to read.

    21. Exceptional and practicalI really value the author's approach to collaborative problem solving and the way he has laid it out in this book is very straightforward and practical. I have already seen improvements with my relationship and problem solving with my kids.

    22. Great read! Like all parenting books, this is full of some really great ideas that I will try to incorporate into my parenting even if I don't agree 100% with everything. Great ideas, relatable examples, addresses a lot of questions - I recommend this book!!

    23. This is a new paradigm for many. In light of current research, it makes a lot of sense. The hope is that others will read Dr. Greene's work and put his methods into practice.

    24. The idea of Collaborative Problem Solving makes so much sense. Lots of good easy to follow examples in the book.

    25. We are reading this for a parent book club selection at PHE. Lots of mixed feelings about how this one works. Better for long term unresolved issues rather than in the heat of the moment.

    26. Great reminder that the way in which we speak to our children matters, with many specific suggestions on how to better communicate in a respectful way

    27. Bra och mycket tänkvärd bok, men så där lite amerikansk ordrik som gör att man tröttnar lite på slutet.

    28. Great tips and ideas for parents, regardless of the age of your kiddo. I like the examples and the why behind using a collaborative approach to solving problems with your child instead of dictating/demanding to them.
