The Battle's End
Un-arguably the hardest part of parenting is knowing what to do when your child has a tantrum, an attitude problem, or needs to be corrected for a new negative behavior. Just like anything we become good at, correcting children and helping them decide to calm down are skills and need to be practiced regularly. When we really understand what we are doing when correcting and calming children we become more confident. This step, with it's new class, will help you become more confident during those hard parenting moments, and help you develop new essential parenting skills.
In this step we talk about:
- Doing a proper correction with calm voice tone
- The Rule of 3
- Soft Hold
- 5 Second Rule
