Appreciative Inquiry & Non-violent communication

Last year, North Star Family Matters, a new parenting magazine, hit the scene.

Personally, I am a strong proponent of Non-violent Communication. I've seen it work so many times. My favorite example of successful Non-violent Communication is the story of a teenage boy named Matt who asked his father to join him in NVC training. Matt was tired of his father's outbursts and constant criticism. At first, the father refused to go, but Matt attended a session on his own. When he engaged his father in a conversation using some of the NVC terms, Matt realized that his father's actions were the result of his own upbringing. In reality the father did not feel good about his parenting style. Together Matt and his father broke down the barriers to true communication and found common ground by joining a local NVC program.
