Transcript of Parenting and Discipline
What we want for our children:
Comfort them when they are hurt, afraid, or sick.
"The secret of parenting is not in what a parent does but rather who the parent is to a child."
Dr.. Gordon Neufeld
"Are you the adult that you want your child to grow up to be?

Connect Before You Direct
attachment is essential
Children want to know:
Am I worthy of attention?
Can I count on you for my needs?
Can I trust you?
Am I safe to explore and learn?
who's needs come first?
keep the relationship intact
don't try to make headway in the incident
feelings must be acknowledged before behavior improves
attempt to change/control the situation - not the child
know when to let something go
set a time to debrief after the storm has past
Name It to Tame It
help child identify feelings
respect these feelings
misbehavior = strong feelings
