Tuesday's Tip: Handeling a tough morning

     This past weekend Quinn had a tough morning.  She wasn't responding well and didn't want to wear anything we offered.  She was hot and we explained the cloths we offered were good for the summer and she just needed to try them on.  She got upset and yelled a little. She also repeats her self a lot and when she wants to get her point across.  Here are some helpful tips...

  1)  Keep your cool and show them you are in control.  Talk to them and explain why you are doing what it is you are doing.

  2)  You can tell them you won't be going anywhere if they don't listen and start letting them know they will be punished. 

  3)  Don't let them win just because they are screaming and keep them in a time out.  Small paddles to but have also been something we as a socity have done but small, and only if they do something drastic like hit you, or slam their door. Things like that.  Never get mad and spank out of anger.

Remember children need to understand rules and punishment, they can't realize they get everything they want.  However always try to talk and just explain to them what ever it is you are doing.  If they really feel uncomfortable then try something else or work with them.

Also if you are getting upset and feel loosing control, tell them to stay in their rom and you take a walk.  Cool off and come back, you never want to loose your cool and hurt or say something that could hurt them.  Also have your spouse take over and switch, tag out and let someone try why you cool of and then go back...

I hope these help.

Always remember,
You are never alone...
