9780983751830: Don't Carve the Turkey with a Chainsaw: Resolving Family Conflict

WINNER 2012 National Indie Excellence Book Award for Relationships! Are your teens driving you crazy? Do you feel like nobody really listens to you? Does your spouse really understand your needs? Could you use five strategies to manage stubborn people? Would you like to zap conflict in your family now? Don t Carve the Turkey with a Chainsaw is the solution that families with or without children can lean on to restore harmony and create closer relationships with family members. There is Nothing Like Parenthood to Teach Humility. Dr. Roger, known as The Conflict Whisperer, says, One style of conflict management for all situations is no more appropriate than one style of clothing for all situations. Just as you wouldn t wear a bikini to your prom, or your wedding dress to work in the garden, your conflict resolution strategy must reflect the people and the situation engaged in the interaction. Just as you wouldn t carve a turkey with a chainsaw, you wouldn t cut a tree with a carving knife. You need to select the appropriate carving tool to accomplish your objectives. Power struggles with teens are not just about independence and hormones. There are normal neurological changes that occur that challenge most parents. Sometimes they seem insurmountable, but they are not.

Don't Carve the Turkey with a Chainsaw: Resolving Family Conflict has just won the National Indie Excellence Book Awards in the relationship category.
