Any parent can recognize the signs of an oncoming tantrum from their child: the red face and screwed-up mouth, the tiny clenched fists, the huffs of frustration. Getting your child to cooperate without exploding can sometimes feel like working against a ticking time bomb. But every parent’s wish is for their children to cooperate with them, both for the children’s happiness and the parents’ sanity. We’re here with Dr. Erin Leyba to discuss some tips for getting your kids to cooperate, and some ways to better bond with them. Dr. Leyba is a licensed clinical social worker and a social work professor in Chicago's western suburbs. She is the author of the recent book Joy Fixes for Weary Parents and writes the Joyful Parenting Blog for Psychology Today. You can learn more about her at her website.
