I have two young sons and I know the feeling! But I have discovered alternative ways to discipline them that I feel good about because, rather than trying to control my boys, they help me to empower them.
To help you out, I have put together a PDF explaining 5 alternatives to lecturing and punishing that I use most often. My hope is that you will be able to use the ideas with your children but also that they will help you to think about discipline in a new way and to create some alternatives of your own.
Also included is an attractive single-page printable you can put on your fridge to remind you of the tools and your respectful intentions when you need them.
Using this guide, you’ll be able to put lectures and punishments behind you and discipline your kids with confidence and love.
