I’ve been struggling with our little one for quite some time on matters of discipline or behaviors needing discipline… As a parent that said I wasn’t going to spank, but who was raised fearing a swat on the butt, it’s hard some days to step back and think creatively about alternate discipline methods.
That’s why I’ve had the Toddler Discipline page from About.com tabbed on my computer recently. Just a quick reference tool to assist me in addressing unwanted behaviors that will hopefully become so ingrained in my processes that the reminder will no longer be needed… but until then, reference – reference – reference!
