Encouraging Reminders

How many moments of parenting are there in a day?  Thousands!  Healthy parenting takes patience, especially with everything you are juggling.  To help you stay positive, try to keep these encouraging reminders close-by.  On the fridge.  In the car.  You’ll find them on every prescription in Behavior Checker.

  • Understand the temperament and personality of each of your children to best teach her what you want her to learn.

  • It’s always important to ask, “Do you need a hug?” Then, hug it out!

  • You can always start teaching a child a new behavior.

  • There's no such thing as a perfect parent. Get right back on track with the teaching solutions in Behavior Checker.

  • Get down on the floor or sit in a chair or the couch with your child, so you and your child are able to connect eye-to-eye.

  • Leave behavior problems to history and don’t keep bringing them up. Pay attention to the behaviors you want repeated!

  • Your kind tone of voice, facial expression and body language communicate that you respect and love your child, even if you don’t love her behavior. Your child learns to treat others respectfully by being treated respectfully.

  • Make what you say and do believable to your child and she will more readily accept your discipline. Keep your tone of voice positive.

  • Patience is the key. Your child learns to be respectful by being treated respectfully.

  • Your child learns by practicing what you want him to learn. Be a consistent teacher.

  • Your love and acceptance for him is unconditional…it’s his behavior you want to change.

  • Avoid power struggles by keeping your tone of voice positive. You and your child are a team, working toward the same goal.
