Cheese Stick or Time Out?
Today I’m thinking about how our kids WANT TO please us (despite appearances to the contrary sometimes!)
Baby humans can’t survive on their own - unlike baby sea turtles.
When your child is acting out, they still want to please you. They still need you - that’s biology. There must be another reason for their behavior besides beside just wanting to be a little ****(fill in the blank.)
When everyone starts melting down, (especially after school, or in the morning,) it can be easy to forget to ask this basic question: “Is my child hangry?”
A parent-centric approach empowers you to give your child a cheese stick instead of a time-out.
Here's the link to one of my most popular No-Yell™ parenting tools, the Child Checklist. Other parents have found it really helpful to print it and put it up on the fridge. Download HERE.
