ParentMap, April 2016

In an interview with Dr. Ross Greene, we explored a brief introduction to CPS.

It’s impossible to solve a problem without information from, input from and involvement from the child whose life is affected by the problem.
— Dr. Ross Greene

MotherJones, July/Aug 2016: 

Katherine Reynolds Lewis reports on the benefits and advantages of the CPS model over other disciplining methods.

Under Greene’s philosophy, you’d no more punish a child for yelling out in class or jumping out of his seat repeatedly than you would if he bombed a spelling test. You’d talk with the kid to figure out the reasons for the outburst (was he worried he would forget what he wanted to say?), then brainstorm alternative strategies for the next time he felt that way. The goal is to get to the root of the problem, not to discipline a kid for the way his brain is wired.
