What do you have to lose?

I try very hard not to lose my temper with my son. I repeat phrases in my head like "he's only six" or "he's still learning" or "will he have a memory of this moment?" but sometimes it is inevitable. I yell; he cries; he loses things.…

Discipline and Punishment for Young Children ~ Suppressing the "Demons" Inside Our Tots

Yesterday, I watched my 4-year-old daughter take her third round of swim lessons after being a two time Swimming School Drop-Out earlier this year.  Caroline has employed many strategies to get out of taking lessons, despite all the bribery I could throw her way.  We’ve gone through the “I-can’t-go-because-I’m-still-going-potty” trick.  The “I’m-gonna-jump-up-and-down-and-scream-like-a-banshee” trick.  Finally,…

When Mommy needs a time out

Sometimes my son pushes me over the edge. It's part of his growing up - he pushes his boundaries and learns the consequences of disrespect. My patience level - like all parents - varies. There are days when I can shake it off, and then there are days when I yell.…

Good cop; bad cop

At work, when things get rough for my team, I have to play the role of bad cop. (Or maybe it is mean cop, I am not always sure.) The point is: I sometimes have to be the tough guy to back up my team. And I am happy to take on that role. At work.…

Science says this is how you should discipline your children

Every household has a different approach on discipline, as most parents have to learn their child's personality before they can determine a policy that is effective. For us, we recognize that our son likes to talk, so we give him timeouts during which he is not allowed to talk. It may feel unfair to him, but it gets his attention and gives us a break from any unacceptable behavior.…

Kids, NO Means NO…or Does It?

no-68481_640

How many times have you said “NO” to your kids, yet they still keep on asking? Ummm…how about every second of every hour of every day.  Yah…in my house too!  If your answer is never, I don’t believe you!

Does this scenario sound familiar?

"Kids—You Can't Beat 'em."

“Kids-You can’t beat ‘em”, was one of the first logos in 1983, when President Reagan proclaimed April to be the first National Child Abuse Prevention Month. I love the dual meaning of this statement. We can’t be physically aggressive with kids. But equally as important, is the message that there is special value in children. Thirty years later, we continue to promote the value of our children and their families, as well as the fact that every member of the community has a responsibility to…

Let's learn something: Can't yell, can't bribe...what can you do?

By now, most of us have seen the study from the Journal of Child Psychology indicating that yelling at children is just as harmful as spanking. So let's review what parents can't do to discipline their children:…

6 Ways to Become a Happier Parent - Right Now *Must Read*

The joys of parenthood are sometimes missed because we spend too much time focusing on how to perfect parenthood. Often times, our path to perfection causes us to miss the most important things. This was the case with me when I first began motherhood. I was always so concerned about making sure I did everything right that I usually ended up failing. I later discover that its okay to be imperfect. Because parenting is rough, we forget to just embrace the blessings that have been given…

A few weeks ago my son moved to a new room at daycare and every since it seems as if he is throwing more fits and tantrums at home.  I know that there is a stigma attached to two year old children and parents must realize that all two year old’s go through a phase often referred to as the terrible twos.  I never really cared for that name…

When Another Adult Disciplines Your Child

My 8-year-old son had an eye doctor's appointment today. He wears glasses, and he has not been able to see as well as he should, so I took him in to get a new prescription for some new glasses.

We saw a new doctor that we hadn't seen before. He seemed nice enough, but when the doctor put that refractor machine over M's face (the one with all the lenses that looks like a pair of space-aged binoculars), things got a bit wonky.…

Discipline

There are times when nothing I do seems to work with my toddler.  It's as though as her confidence grows so does her willingness to talk back.  I'll be the first to admit that I'm no expert at discipline.  I just try my best to reinforce consequences for bad behavior.  Izzy can throw a tantrum like the best of them with the tears, the screaming and even flailing legs for an added affect.  That said I still think that generally Izzy is pretty well…
