Last week when Holly . Randy and I went to our conscious discipline training it was the perfect training for us. Not only did it remind us of some things that were slipping but also dug deeper in the consequences versus punishment argument. I think so many times we want to punish kids for being kids. When they are having a problem somehow we take it personal and want to make them feel bad. Children will never learn a new skill when they feel bad. When they feel safe and loved is when they flourish and their little minds can begin to learn many new skills.
This week in our blog we will dig deeper and talk about what each of those things mean to us. So for today- I want you to do a little self reflection and think – when my children make a mistake do I see that as an opportunity to teach them something new, make a connection or punish?￼
