"When your child is having a meltdown, remember, it's their crisis, not yours. Breathe deeply. Calm yourself. Then use a quiet voice and gentle hands to guide your little one through their crisis. That is living what you want them to learn." 'The Gentle Parent: Positive, Practical, Effective Discipline' by L.R.Knost www.littleheartsbooks.com
This is a GREAT parenting strategy that promotes accountability and positive outcomes. Dealing with consequences is a very important part of the parenting job and this is a really helpful tool when your child gets grounded.
