Create your child's own quote book. I've thought of this so many times! :)

Find the Positive: "Hugging hands" instead of don't hit. "Walking feet" instead of don't run. Make up your own: "Whisper voice" instead of stop yelling. "Mommy's listening" for the whining times. "Love time" as a break when child is upset, fussy or clinging (then give your child attention and cuddles). Teach respect and proper communication techniques. Remember to keep your patience too :)
