Positive Parenting (tips from the trenches)

Positive Discipline for Preschoolers: For Their Early Years--Raising Children Who are Responsible, Respectful, and Resourceful (Positive Discipline Library)Positive Discipline A-Z: 1001 Solutions to Everyday Parenting Problems (Positive Discipline Library)
Some of you might be reading this and thinking 'Oh geez...new age nonsense parenting...whats wrong with a good ol spanking? It's how I was raised." Well, so was I, but hear me out. We spank our daughter, but usually as a last resort, but I really dislike the way it works. Its forcing a child into a position of defense, you against them, instead of coaching the lil' one on how to deal with emotions and issues.

So I am trying to incorporate this positive parenting into our discipline one area at a time. This book (Positive Discipline A-Z by Jane Nelsen, Ed.D., et al) is great, full of real life problems with multiple solutions and hitting on a variety of age groups. Every now and again I will post a ppt (positive parenting tidbit) from the book. But if that's not enough, buy it !There's a whole range of them.

Love and positivity,
Kerry the Momster
