Power struggles with our kids are no fun but they offer us an opportunity to recognize and work with our child’s temperament instead of fighting against it. We will look at two aspects of temperament that significantly shape family life: introversion/extraversion and the thinking/feeling preferences. You will leave with some concrete tools for identifying these preferences in your child and why it can make all the difference in reducing power struggles and building strong parent- child relationships.
