Discipline without anger August 04, 2004 12:47 AM

I was wondering if anyone has any suggestions on better ways of correcting toddlers(my lil guy is going to be 4 in sept!)without yelling,spanking or just generally the whole "you do it this way or else'' sort of thing. It is very hard to raise a child when you live around people who don't understand what your trying to do when it comes to attatchment parenting and I was wondering if anyone could help me get some more info for the folks(and maybe even his dad!!). Thanks alot. -B  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

I have trouble with this too, as i come from a family of smackers - my mum's remedy to all naughtiness is to smack their ass. I'm finding the naughty corner works quite well, also with my younger daughter if you say to them ' i'm very unhappy with what you have just done (don't say you're unhappy with them) and I am not going to talk to you for 3 minutes' Being ignored is the ultimate punishment to a 3 year old!!! I have come back after 3 minutes - don't leave it any longer or forget to go back!!!- and she has tidied all the mmess, or whatever the problem was. Then give them a cuddle and say you don't like it when they do naughty things (but don't call them naughty) I've not been doing this for long so i'm sure the others will have plenty of tips for you.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]

I highly recommend the book _How To Talk So Kids Will Listen and Listen So Kids Will Talk_.  [ send green star]

Jane Nelsen's book _Positive Discipline_ is also a great one. There is a website for support as well, if you wanted to look around there before buying the book: I know I have a few more books around here somewhere, I'll take a look as soon as I can.  [ send green star]  [ accepted]
