    What We're Up Against

    What We're Up Against

    There's legislation pending in Massachusetts that would ban suspension for students in grades K-3. An admirable effort, but it drew some very ineresting responses from readers of The Boston Glove, which reported on this effort. Those responses tell us we still have a lot more work to do to ensure that caregivers understand the true factors that cause kids' concerning behaviors...and why a suspension would do far more harm than good.

    What's the Problem with Plan C?

    What's the Problem with Plan C?

    In the March edition of the CPS Podcast, we take a deep dive into Plan C (in the CPS model, Plan C refers to putting an expectation on hold, at least for now). While those familiar with CPS recognize that Plan C is a very important part of prioritizing expectations -- and stabilizing some kids -- putting expectations on hold is frequently misinterpreted as "giving in" and "giving up," and some caregivers have pressures being placed on them that make it very difficult to put ANY expectations on hold.

    Coping Strategies: Are We Teaching Kids to be Early or Late?

    Coping Strategies: Are We Teaching Kids to be Early or Late?

    The special topic on today's program was Coping Strategies: Are We Teaching Kids to Be Early or Late? Unfortunately, many of the coping strategies we're teaching kids these days teach them to cope once they're already frustrated. That's late. What should we be empahasizing instead? Teaching kids how to identify, anticipate, and solve the problems that are causing them to become frustrated in the first place. That's early. And we were also able to respond to an email and help out a mom who called in with a difficult situation with her son.

Big fan of Ross Greene

… but not a fan of the poor sound quality of this podcast. Surely someone could help them with this.

Too smug

There are some good ideas here but it feels a bit cultish. Dr. Greene portrays his model as very collaborative, but he’s so dismissive of any other approaches. It’s ironic that he himself is so rigid and is such a heavy-handed salesman.

Rowanmininil ,

Great info

But is there anyway to ask people who aren’t talking to mute themselves. I had to turn an episode off because the extraneous noise was so distracting.
