ECE 313 Week 4 Discussion 2

Ashford 5: – Week 4 – Discussion 2


Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.


Problem   Solving

Choose one of the following scenarios from Chapter 8 in your text:

  • Some parents request that their      boys should not be permitted to play in the dress up area, and should not      be allowed to wear women’s hats, shoes, and clothes to dress up.
  • Some parents complain that      their children continually come home with paint on their clothes and sand      in their hair, and ask that their children not be allowed to paint or play      in the sandbox (Wardle, 2013, p. 221).

Using the following strategies from Keyser, presented in Chapter 8, construct a thoughtful response to the parent in your chosen situation.  Name the scenario in your post (Dress Up or Mess).  Then, respond to each of the following points in your post.

  1. Listen and ask open-ended      questions.  (What questions will you ask to be sure you understand      the parent’s perspective?)
  2. Restate and reframe the      parent’s ideas.  (How will you rephrase the situation to demonstrate      to the parent that you understand their problem?)
  3. Find common ground.       (Refer back to the child.  Restate that both you and the parent want      what is best for the child, therefore______ should be done.)
  4. State your position, ideas, and      feelings.  (Be sure to leave your emotions out of this.  Be sure      to include fact.)
  5. Give information as      appropriate.  (At this point, you must include one outside resource,      preferably a community resource, to assist the parent with this issue.)
  6. Give the parent an opportunity      to respond. (What will you say to encourage the parent to share their      thoughts?)
  7. Outline the conflict as equally      valid viewpoints. (Although this would be necessary in a conversation, it      is not necessary to include in this assignment.)
  8. Invite, discuss, and choose      possible solutions. (Offer a reasonable solution.)
  9. Thank the parent and set up a      time to check back in. (What would be the appropriate amount of time      before revisiting this situation?)

Guided Response:  Review several of your classmates’ posts.  Respond to at least two of your peers who chose a different scenario than you.  Offer your thoughts on how the parent in the given situation would react.  Offer at least one additional solution to the problem.
