Title: Problem Solving, Decision Making, Negotiation and Compromise


1
Problem Solving, Decision Making, Negotiation and
Compromise
  • Nurturing Parenting
  • Section 10.2
  • GOAL
  • Increase abilities in problem solving and
    decision making.

2
OBJECTIVES
  • To Teach parents a process in resolving problems.
  • To enhance communication skills.
  • To empower parents to resolve family conflicts

3
  • For the next hour we learn two very important
    skills in communication
  • Problem solving and negotiation
  • When parents and children both have a different
    ideas on what to do, what to wear, when to come
    home, etc., conversations usually reach an
    impasse.
  • When this happens, both parties feel frustrated
    and the discussion often leads to arguments. To
    reach a settlement while leaving both parties
    with power is the goal. Problem solving and
    negotiation will leave both parents and children
    feeling satisfied.

  • Problem solving.
  • What to do when you have a problem but dont know
    what the solution is.
  • Decision Making.
  • What you do when you know what your alternatives
    are.

5
Problem Solving
  • Problem solving can be a person process or a
    family process. To reach a point of action in
    solving problems, both personal and family,
    certain steps need to be followed. Identify a
    problem and model how the process can work.
  • Each parent identify an issue that is currently a
    problem between them and their children. Pick
    one of these to do the process together.

6
Problem Solving Process
  • Identify the problem Write it down for you and
    family members to see. Have the group gain a
    consensus concerning the problem. Is this the
    real problem?
  • Determine Ownership of the problem Is someone
    doing something you dont approve of but does not
    see the behavior as a problem.

7
Problem Solving Process (cont.)
  • Discuss what you have tried Talk with the person
    involved with the problem and review past efforts
    on solving the problem. Remember to use I
    statements rather than blaming You Messages.
  • Write down a goal statement What behavior do you
    want to see? This is the critical step and
    perhaps the most difficult of them all. If it is
    a family members problem, tell them the behavior
    you would like to see instead. Discuss the
    behavior you would like to see , and make sure
    the behavior is reasonable and attainable. Do not
    identify what you do not what to see, but
    identify what you want to see.

8
Problem Solving Process (cont.)
  • Brainstorm ways to achieve what you would like to
    see instead Whether it is your problem or some
    elses problem, brainstorm ways to achieve the
    desired behavior. This is an important step in
    the problem-solving process.
  • Make a decision From your brainstorming pick
    out your favorite possibilities to resolve the
    problem and make a consensus decision on which
    one is the best approach to resolving the problem.

9
Decision Making When it is not obvious
  • From the brainstorming ideas, the decision ought
    to be clear. If not, check the problem statement
    and the goal statement to make certain they are
    still accurate reflections of what you mean. If
    the problem still exits, begin the process with
    step 1 again.
  • When the problem solving process does not resolve
    the issue, family members utilize negotiation and
    compromise. Compromise and negotiations is use
    extensively in our society to resolve issues.
  • What does negotiate and compromise mean? Where is
    it used? Sports, Governments, Unions, etc.

10
Steps in Negotiating
  • Step 1 When asking for something or stating a
    view, first determine if there is a difference of
    opinion between you and the other party. If
    there is continue to the next step.
  • Step 2 State your views and what you think the
    views of the other person are. Remember to
    confront, not criticize, and to use I
    statements, not blaming You Statements.

11
Steps in Negotiating (cont.)
  • Step 3 Ask the person if your impression of the
    problem, and your understanding of their views,
    are accurate. Listen openly to their views. Do
    not walk away, or argue, but listen. Remember
    their views are equally as valid as yours.
  • Step 4 Offer a compromise. Be sure to take into
    account their views, as well as your own. Keep
    negotiating until an agreement is reached.

12
Example of Negotiation and Compromise
  • Step 1 A difference of opinion.
  • Mom Son, you and I seem to disagree on what
    time we should establish your curfew.
  • Step 2 State your views and the views of the
    other person.
  • Mom I believe curfew should be 9 oclock at
    night on weekday. In my opinion, that gives you
    plenty of time with your friends.
  • However, you feel that you should be able to
    stay out until 10 oclock because youre the only
    one coming in early.
  • Step 3

13
Example of Negotiation and Compromise (cont.)
  • Step 3 Get clarity.
  • Mom Am I understanding what the problem is?
  • Son Yes, precisely. Im the only one in the
    whole world who has to be home at 9 oclock.
  • Step 4 Compromise. Offer choices.
  • Mom I can see how you might feel a little
    funny being the only one coming in at 9 oclock.
    Tell you what, how about 915?
  • Son Still too early. How about 945 PM?
  • Mom Too late. How about if we compromise (Split
    the difference) 930 pm?
  • Son OK. 930 PM. Other kids have to be in
    too.
  • Step 3

14
Lets Practice Negotiation and Compromise
  • Form up in pairs and decide an issue or
    difference of opinion.
  • One partner be the parent and the other be the
    child.
  • Negotiate and Compromise on the issue.
  • Switch places and resolve another difference of
    opinion.
