The Wheel of Choice

This video talks about how to implement the use of the ‘wheel of choice’ in your home.  It is about offering your child a framework in which that can try and problem solve. 

The idea is to make the tool WITH your child as we know that our kids are more inclined to embrace new ideas or strategies if they are involved in the process.  This can be a great tool for sibling fighting as you can offer  for them to choose a strategy from the wheel of choice to try and ‘solve’ the issue. 

BUT, remember no one can effectively problem-solve in the heat of the moment or when they are over-whelmed.  So this tool needs to be used either before the drama escalates or after when all parties have had a moment to regain their calm.
