New parenting toolkit teaches kids to ‘Disagree Better’

Jason Carroll, left, and Dave Schramm talk present Disagree Better: A Parenting Toolkit during the National Governors Association meeting in Nashville, Tennessee, on Tuesday, May 14, 2024. Carroll is the director of the family initiative at Brigham Young University’s Wheatley Institute, and Schramm is an associate professor and family life extension specialist at Utah State University.

The Disagree Better: A Parenting Toolkit features three parts.

The third section focuses on managing disagreements within a person’s community. The second part looks at handling disagreements with family members.

But the first section, titled “It Starts With Me,” is intended just for parents. And it’s designed as an internal, honest assessment of how parents are modeling disagreements to their children, said Dave Schramm, an associate professor and family life extension specialist at Utah State University.
