Talking with Kids

There are many situations where knowing how to negotiate will really help our kids.

How much drama do kids have with their friends? Reduce the number of storm clouds by helping them learn to negotiate with their buddies. "I don't really want to go to the park today, but if you'll watch this movie with me today, I'll go with you tomorrow. How is that?" "I will trade you these three Pokemon cards for that one I'm missing."


      Co-workers and employers

So, the question is not 'Should I negotiate?' but 'When and how?' Keep in mind that some issues are not negotiable (safety, health) and some times are not appropriate to negotiate at all."
