I'd like to show our problem solving attempts; what has made a difference in our every day interactions, and over the long haul.
Kindergarten began with the hope that our problem child would be a little more mature and cooperative. Kindergarten ended with dashed hopes, and his teacher's early retirement
How do I go about disciplining smaller kids in my house? If you ask my mom and sisters, they will tell you that I don't. That's not really my fault, though!
We rarely feed the entire flock at restaurants; the cost is prohibitive, seating is tricky, and then there's the stress of iffy manners from the kids.
Not to stir up old family drama or anything, but hand me a spoon... Think about a time you were disciplined when you were your child's age. How do you wish your parents would have handled the situation? How can you discipline better?
The problem came down to a lack of both 'benevolent leadership' and 'internal locus of control'.
Time flies, especially when you are arguing with the world's most determined litigator...
Daily life is far more rewarding when we have more positives than negatives in the "bank".
We have to be more creative with our discipline tactics these days.
