The Number 1 Parenting Technique That Will Help Improve Your Childs Behavior

In a recent blog post I talk about the importance of tracking. It is such a powerful tool and the data you glean from it is invaluable. As part our our initial tracking we tracked our responses each time Samantha had an outburst. Whether it was the removal of a consequence, yelling back, doing nothing, talking calming, or giving a spanking. Each week we would try out a different technique to see what would happen. Any guesses as to which one worked best?

IT'S ABOUT TAKING THE TIME TO MAKE MEMORIES

So yesterday Samantha & I were sitting at the table working on her school work, when she asks, "Mom will Scooter die when we move?"

I paused and look long & hard into those big blue eyes. My heart sank a bit. It's such a heavy topic for a child. I gathered my thoughts for a moment and I said, "Yes, honey. At some point he will no longer be with us."

She thought for a moment. Then asked (and I knew it was coming) "What about you and Daddy."

WISH US LUCK

So today munchkin will spend 1/2 day of observation at her potential new school. If all goes well, I expect an acceptance letter. If not...well, honestly, I do not currently have a plan B. I am a big ball of stress. I have prepared for the worst, I am going to hope for the best, and anything in between is probably fine.
