If you're stuck in a negative communication pattern, it can take a while before the connection is reestablished. A lot of love, trust and patience should do the trick.

very mich so! and even that is cyclical!I go through phases here I think we're doing awesome, and then I get moments of panic, because they're not 'show you' learning enough

I'm right there with you! Mikko's clearly learning to read…but in his own sweet time. And he seems to do best when we stop pressuring and just let him figure it out in his own way.

Very informative and coincidentally very useful to me at this point!

i remember those days. My daughter was adiment on " Stop staring at me!" That made everyone actually stare. All school year long in 1st grade. Only it was even when she wasn't upset. People just causually looking at her when she walked in the door. I must mention she has since been diagnosed with aspergers syndrome Her feelings of herself have not improved much 7 years later. And she has been in therapy since 1st grade.

Since when is at 26 year old with a 4 year old a YOUNG mom? I thought that was the normal age to have kids. It's certainly the age nature intended us to have kids!

2015-08-16T17:13:03.705+02:00

Kids who receive sensitive and caring responses when they are distressed are less likely to break the law as adults. Reams of data have documented the link between sensitive parenting and secure attachment, and the link between secure attachment and lower rates of behaviour problems - including the precursors to delinquency.

2015-08-16T17:10:36.591+02:00

Discipline isn't just punishment - it literally means 'teaching'. Punishment is one type of discipline, rewards are another kind, modelling and prompting the behaviour we want to see is another kind and talking to the kid about feelings and behaviour is another kind.
Too many parents use only punishment without making use of the rest of the discipline toolbox. And yet punishment is the least effective of all of those, because it only teaches what they should not do instead of what they should do.

2015-08-16T17:05:58.466+02:00

Well, controlling your breathing is a valid relaxation strategy even if you don't have asthma. I would recommend that when he gets upset, you get on his level, maybe give him a hug or whatever, and start talking him through taking slow, even breaths. Once his breathing has settled down, talk to him about what happened.

2015-08-16T17:03:00.263+02:00

I'd say go for triage in the immediate situation, by comforting the child with the strongest need - which, in that example, would be the one who has just been bitten. Then, once that child is reasonably calm, check in with each of the other children and get them calmed down as well.

2015-08-16T16:59:44.459+02:00

I can see not giving a child a candy if they're crying. But if they're acting that way to get hugs and comfort, then the problem is that you're NOT giving them enough attention when they're calm, not that you're giving too much when they're upset.

2015-08-04T10:52:53.017+02:00

I m pregnant with twind n have a high risk pregnancy, I m on bedrest since last 12 weeks n have reached 23 weeks today. I also have a history of previous loss at 22 weeks without any reason. I m really anxious n nervous all the time. First it was because I was scared for my babies but now I m more scared of bedrest, I feel like my time is not passing. I try to focus of different activities for passing my time but really can't as m constantly thinking about time. I can't sleep well at night n m worried about babies n really impatient to reach till term with 23 weeks more to go. I was surfing the net n came read it blog here..m really in need of something that can cure me right now. I know everything will be fine once I have my babies in my hands.

Lecturing on compassion by shaming a woman for her fertility, and showing no compassion yourself? No intellectual or moral contradictions there ...

2015-01-11T06:16:10.053+02:00

This is just absurd... You are comparing behaving like a child, to breaking the law??? This article isn't just about kids misbehaving, it's about dealing with a child who is upset.... Are you saying that if your child is upset, for a reasonable reason, you WILL NOT talk to them calmly about it???



Nowhere does it imply that children are angels.......

2015-01-11T06:11:45.018+02:00

Nowhere does it imply that children are angels....and young children will never grow up to be strong if we constantly break then down first...

Maybe you shouldn't have had so many children if you can't show compassion bc of it...
