Smarter Ways to Discipline Children

The Wall Street Journal just published this GREAT article titled, "Smarter Ways to Discipline Children."  I thought it was so great that I wanted to share it with you!

In summary,
  • Parents need to praise their kids more. Focus on the good things they do.
  • Be Patient. Give your kids time to respond.
  • Clearly explain your commands.
  • Watch your own behavior. Do you yell and throw tantrums, too?
  • Have your child "practice" throwing a tantrum so they learn how silly it really is. Pretend to throw a tantrum with your child. It will often end in laughter.
