You’ve now finished learning the core tools in the Foundation-Building Toolbox:

The first five chapters of the Parents Toolshop® Guide Book  helped you set a strong, stable foundation for your parenting:

  • Establish and maintain a balanced parenting style. (Lesson 2)
  • Have a healthy parenting mindset. (Lesson 3)
  • Use the two parts of the Universal Blueprint® problem-solving system (Lessons 4 & 5):A.    3 Problem Identification Questions:
    1. Is it a Child or Parent problem?
    2. If there’s Problem behavior, is it Unintentional or On purpose?
    3. If the Problem behavior is On purpose, what’s the purpose?
  • B.     The PASRR Effective-Response Formula:

Prevent the problem from starting or worsening

When there’s a problem:

    Here’s what to SAY

Acknowledge the child’s feelings

Set limits or express concerns

    Here’s what to DO
