In this video, I demonstrate a simple and effective tool that not only invites better cooperation, but it also teaches long-term life skills and helps children develop self-efficacy (belief in self) and self-discipline. 

I demonstrate a very simple application of the tool in the video, but you can use this same tool for more complicated situations to help your child explore the consequences of their own decisions and find solutions.
