Simple discipline technique - being positive! I used to give time-out after time-out and this is more effective for my 6-year-old. I count 1-2-3 before moving his name down to give him a chance to correct. And an end-of-day reward is great incentive to stay in the 'Happy zone'.
Have some fun outdoors this summer by making this super easy and cheap obstacle course using pool noodles from the dollar store and bbq skewers. Great for children who are learning to crawl or for older kids to practice ball skills.
