The Solution

"If we're creating an atmosphere of power struggle, the kids will fight back to win. If we're creating an atmosphere of problem solving, the kids will feel part of the solution rather than part of the problem."
—Joyce Fetteroll

  1. Kids will always want to succeed (win?) in whatever situations an problems they're faced with.

  2. I would say everyone has a drive to get better at what they enjoy. But that drive can be damaged. And not all kids like to go it alone. Growing up in a supportive atmosphere will be a big help in kids wanting to tackle their problems.
