The Healthy Family Connections Podcast:

Ending the Teacher-Teen Control Battle

Episode 008 · Duration: 00:13:45

Parents and Teens aren’t the only ones who can find themselves in Control Battles. Teachers and Students can fall victim to the Control Battle Beast just as well.

In episode eight of Healthy Family Connections, Neil takes a question from Jessica, a middle school teacher. She is asking for input on applying the principles from his book, Ending the Parent-Teen Control Battle, to a middle school classroom:

As a middle school teacher I’m exposed to teachers who are sometimes burnt out, and lose the positive vision of certain kids. I think holding a positive vision of each student is important, and at heart we all feel that way, but what privileges would you see a teacher withholding when we engage in The Talk and outline our expectations?Jessica from Gainesville, Virginia
