Steps to Collaborating

A guaranteed approach to reducing conflicts, honoring your teens developmental tasks, and solving problems together is Collaborating. Tweens yearn to have a say in their lives.

This approach also increases their cognitive functioning and decision-making skills.

The Five Steps to Collaborating Are:

1. Agree that X is a problem and to solve it together.

2. Listen with respect to all possible solutions.

3. Agree upon solutions(s) and define roles.

4. Build consensus and win-win.

5. Follow-through and maintenance checks.
