PAP 015: Behavior is Just a Symptom, with Penny Williams

November 2, 2017

I've been reading Ross Greene's newest book, Raising Human Beings, and I am so inspired to share how his insights and approach to parenting challenging kids can be a powerful force in your parenting. Of course, I've been a fan of Greene's work for years, and I recommend his books to parents constantly.

What you have to understand first, before you can implement his collaborative problem solving process with success, is that behavior is simply a symptom of the actual problem. The behavior is not the problem. Stick with me... it makes sense. It's a problem, but not the problem. Learn all about it in this episode of the Parenting ADHD Podcast.
