In response, we have been making our way through the "Raising a Thinking Child Workbook" together, and it is making a big difference for both of us. As a parent, I have learned to re-frame and re-phrase expectations in a more understandable way. The best growth has been in my son, though. He is now able to confront emotions and behaviors in a more thoughtful and clear way, and he has learned to curb his reactions and respond to situations in a calmer way.
Many different situations are presented throughout the book, setting up discussions of whether the situation is a "good idea" or a "bad idea" or whether things can happen before, after, or at the same time...and so forth. This leads into discussion of how both people in the situation might feel as well as possible solutions to ease the situation.
Some of the specific difficult situations that are presented include: child wanting parent's attention while parent is on the phone or cooking dinner, child throwing toys on the floor, teasing, fighting over TV/toys/video games, messy room. There are also many positive situations to discuss: child going to bed on time, helping to set the table, sharing, helping a hurt friend, etc.
This book is helpful both for child-child relationships and child-parent relationships. It has proven to be helpful for improving behavior both at home and at school.
