Set firm limits and still maintaim goodwill: " I can see how anger you are at your brother. Tell him what you want with words, not with fists."

Resolve family conflicts easily: "I've been thinking that it probably isn't easy for you to leave your friends when you're having fun. on the other hand, I worry when you're late. Lets put our heads together and see if we can come up with some ideas that would be good for both of us.
Use alternatives to "NO": "We're having dinner in five minutes. Do you have time to go to Suzie's to play?."
