Description
Episode Description
This is episode two, 'Blades of a Scissor.' This episode educates parents on how to help children solve problems. Michael Brandwein encourages parents to listen to their child and to encourage their children to find their own solutions with guidance but not force. Brandwein highlights the importance of teaching young people problem-solving skills that will continue to help them throughout their lives.
Series Description
"In three one-half hour programs, Parenting Puzzle: The Middle Years presents tips and techniques for improving communication between parents and children ages 9-13. Acclaimed parent educator Michael Brandwein uses humor and storytelling to focus on three important concepts: listening, problem-solving and modeling. A parent/discussion leader guide accompanies the series to help parents and others use each program effectively. "With a lack of good resources for parents of young people in this age group, Parenting Puzzle: The Middle Years stands as a much-needed - and easy-to-understand - training course for parents and child care providers. By focusing on broad concepts instead of specific problems, the series promotes better communication by improving underlying skills. Parenting Puzzle: The Middle Years is distributed nationwide to public television stations and parenting organizations."--1998 Peabody Awards entry form.
