The busy commuting lifestyle can be brutal for young parents.  It’s hard enough to find time at home, and especially when children are young, it’s hard to get everything done before bedtime, and everyone out the door in the morning again.  This course has great practical help for parents of children up to age ten, along with worksheets and discussion questions to help you process what you’re learning.

If you’re parenting with a partner, ask them to watch or listen to the same content as you, so you can discuss the question when you’re back in one place.

This course is also great in groups – start by checking it out alone, but then invite someone else or a couple to join  you.  When you’ve been meeting in a group for a little while, register your group here.

Day 25 - Helping Children Make Good Choices Part I

Parenting Children Ages 0-10

1. Be Fair and Clear

• are they old enough to understand our instructions?
• are we expecting too much for their age?

2. Use your voice effectively
• use a serious tone of voice to teach what "no" means
• aim not to shout unless warning of danger

3. Action gets results
• shouting and threatening are ineffective
• important to take action over bad behavior,
• i.e: follow through with a consequence

What choices have you given your child(ren) today? What encouragement have you given for right choices this week? What unpleasant consequences have you used for wrong choices this week?
