Part of my job description as an early intervention provider is family training. Many parents lack stimulus control over their children. Discipline starts at birth and has a natural progression as the child grows. My book provides assistance with implementing behavioral strategies.
Raising children is a full time job; I can't count the number of times l've heard; "children don't come with instructions," "You're lucky you're cute," "I think he/she is hungry," "they must be tired," "I don't want to go home!" These are just a few but you get the picture. Excuses for children's behavior develops into patterns of behavior. It is not easy to discipline children but it's a necessity. Children need to gain coping skills, respect boundaries, and follow simple directions to become happy, well rounded individuals. In this A-Z guide, there are easy to follow directions that will assist in combating undesired behaviors and put you on the right path to gain the confidence needed to discipline your children. Before you start any behavior strategies there are a few things to consider. behaviors will INCREASE before the DECREASE; stay CONSISTENT in every approach, pick one behavior to combat at a time, and follow through with any and all strategies until your child consistently displays appropriate responses (mastered the behavior.) You can be friends with your children when they become adults, for now it's your job to instill boundaries, make them be accountable for undesired behaviors and to love and cherish them!
