A Note From Mark Felber

"Our most basic instinct is not for survival but for family. Most of us would give our own life for the survival of a family member, yet we lead our daily life too often as if we take our family for granted."

-- Paul Pearshall

Eleven seminarsHow Well Are You Listening to Your Children (or Others)?

When our children come to us with a problem, we usually want to help them. So we console, interpret, advise, distract or praise. Other times, we feel we must teach our children, and so we interrogate, lecture, moralize or order. And probably more often than we'd like, we respond angrily -- blaming, criticizing, ridiculing, shaming or withdrawing.

They often serve to stop the communication of real feelings and the development of individual solutions. Take the quiz below, adapted from the classic Parent Effectiveness Training, by Dr. Thomas Gordon, to assess your listening skills. Answer True or False to the following statements:

Stress is a natural and normal "by-product" of every family's life. In fact, family stress can bring out the best of us: as we stretch to meet the challenges we face, we become better parents, our children blossom and our families grow. But too much stress can spiral our families in the other direction. Take this test, answering True or False to these statements, to see how your family fares.
