Growing up do you remember thinking, when I have children I’m never going to ______? And can you reflect it wasn’t long into the journey of parenting or teaching you found yourself doing or saying the very things you said you would never do?
We all come into our adult lives with pre-programmed messaging. This messaging affects our ability to calm ourselves and often leaves us with feelings of “not good enough.” Our ability to maintain our own self-control determines whether we pass these messages on to our children. Understanding children’s development helps us create solutions, give effective commands, and facilitate their self-esteem.
In this session, you will learn to communicate from the intention of love rather than fear and shift from do as I say, not as I do. Join Dr. Becky Bailey in Part 1 of the 2-part audio 10 Principles of Positive Discipline.
