After a little less than a week working on only 2 different areas (our time out technique needed serious improvement, as did our discipline with sticking to a schedule), its like I have a different child. He has been wonderful. This week we are starting work on our bedtime routine, and who knows? Disneyland may be back on the table in a few months.
Thank you, Jo!
Although the five rules were not what I expected, as only the last one was directly about misbehaviors, her concise rule plan makes good sense. And, I do understand that the process of getting a change in the child’s behavior will first require changes in the parent’s behavior (approach to the issue at hand) such as providing consistent healthy meals, an environment for the required restorative sleep, arranging socialization opportunities and physical activities as well as engaging daily in a variety of early learning experiences. With these first 4 rules consistently in place, we noticed a decrease in behavior problems across the board ;-)
I appreciated the chapter on dealing with the 3 different types of tantrums. Now that we are able to identify which tantrum our daughter is displaying, it is much easier to address it effectively, even those really embarrassing ones in public.
I also want to recommend a respected, classic, trouble-shooting A-Z guide of a similar philosophy called, “The Pocket Parent”, written just for parents of 2, 3, 4 & 5 year olds. This book is organized differently with fast answers so that a parent can quickly flip to the alphabetical listing of behavior problems such as anger, bedtime and mealtime refusals, biting, power struggles, whining, hitting and hurting others and more. The discipline and communication skills of both books go hand-in-hand in gaining more compliance than defiance from the young children while helping maintain your sanity on one of those days we all have once in a while!
