You can take a break here
Father is angry with his child because they never do their homework and is often out with friends.
I statement: When you do not do your homework, I feel disappointed because I want you to do well at school. What I’d like is to discuss why you do not want to work at home?
What do you think of the I statement formula? Can you use it? Who do you think it could be more successful with (adults, peers, partners) and why?
Remember this formula and encourage the children to use it to resolve conflicts.
