Creating a Culture of Accountability

with Kathy Salazar
on Thursday, June 17, 2010

In this forum we will explore appropriate and effective ways of holding children accountable for the choices they make. Regardless of the age of your children, parents will gain strength and parental fortitude to set reasonable limits and follow through with appropriate consequences. We will also look at ways to prepare your children for increased responsibility and independence in school and at home.

A review of the April 29 forum, Taming Power Struggles, will be presented. Clicking on and reading the follow-up to that session will give you a headstart.
Follow-ups are found on the right sidebar.


  1. Thank you Thank you Thank you Kathy! You have shared this information with me time and again however hearing you last night really helped me refocus my efforts. My boys woke up in this morning and I acknowledge that they "decided to wake up happy today." I practised my tone of voice and offering choices - I think I even managed to head off a tantrum or two! I can't thank you enough for continuing to make yourself accessible to parents - you have a treasure trove of information and I for one appreciate your desire to share it with us! Pam

  2. Thank you, Pam, for your kind words. As my words were an encouragement to you, your words are encouraging to me!
    I am just loving our new forum and am so happy so many are being touched by it!
    See you Thursday!

  3. Kathy I just wanted to let you know we are still practicing and even came up with a new tool. We posted our Family Rules (not just kids but for mom and dad too!) on the wall. The boys and I decided together what our rules are - and we even add new ones as needed. Now we can point to the list and say this is our rule. It is helping Ben in particular I think because it takes the "right or wrong" away from him and puts it on the wall. He likes to review them once in a while and will sometimes tell me our rules out of the blue. Talk about a quick way to de-escalate a impending fit!
