How to Stop Temper Tantrums in Toddlers

Chelsea M. Reyher presented a out of the ordinary parenting solution for How to Stop Temper Tantrums in Toddlers. This appears in the Daily Local News (http://www.dailylocal.com/) out of West Chester, PA. Ms. Reyher is writing about the benefits of learning sign language for eliminating and/or minimizing tantrums in very young children and toddlers. The intent here is to teach hearing parents and toddlers. This bridges the communication gap for these toddlers, who can then get their thoughts understood. She is reporting that the program that was developed to teach sign language to parents and toddlers was developed in Canada. It is called “My Smart Hands.” How cool is this?

How to Stop Temper Tantrums in Toddlers

“Why teaching ASL to hearing children can minimize tantrums”

“Not getting what she wanted, Fireese signed “more cheese,” and with that Berg was able to give her what she wanted before a frustrating tantrum ensued. What may be surprising to know is that Fireese is a hearing child, and Berg used sign language to overcome …”
“Laura Berg, …” “Berg lives in Canada and since she has had so much success in communicating with Fireese, she founded My Smart Hands, an international company with a developed curriculum and instructors that teach parents to use ASL with their hearing babies, infants and toddlers.”

Here ‘s a video of the actual toddler in action. It’s a miracle. It’s a sound way to help a toddler communicate. I have seen toddlers make up their own sign language, but parents miss it most every time. This is a great way to understand the need and desires of a toddler with a limited vocabulary.

UPDATE NOTE: This is video of Laura Berg, creator of the “My Smart Hands” program. This is Laura and baby Fireese interacting.

How to Discipline Kids

How to Discipline KidsSue Jones writes a short piece in the Yahoo! Contributor Network (http://uk.lifestyle.yahoo.com/ – UK & Ireland).

She talks about her opinions on How to Discipline Kids. She firmly believes that no one other than a parent should Discipline Kids. What about teachers? What about Sunday School Teachers? She gives general examples of the ‘rightness’ of her opinions, yet she does not give details. In those cases, exactly what ‘punishment’ was doled out?

This is a quick read. It does evoke some ideas. ‘Discipline’ is not ‘punishment;’ it is teaching. Check out the excerpt below, and then go to the original source to read the comments.

_______________________________________________________________

How to Discipline Kids

“Would you discipline another person’s child?”

“I absolutely do not agree with disciplining other people’s children. I think very strongly that only the parents of the children should be the ones to discipline them and I would be very annoyed if my …”

“I do expect certain levels of behaviour from my son in the house.”

“I have been in a situation where an adult told my son off for being a bit clumsy and spilling a drink. In my opinion she was a bit too heavy handed …”

______________________________________________________________

I think she should count her lucky stars that she has not run into children that are ‘out-of-control’ is someone else’s home. Her rules for her son’s behavior in the house seem a little light. She almost seems to contradict herself. She states that no one other than a parent should ‘discipline kids,’ yet she clearly states that if a child were pulling stuffing out of the sofa, she would not let that behavior continue. That is discipline. Perhaps her use of the word, discipline, is misplaced. Perhaps she means, ‘punishment.’ Ah, discipline is never to be punishment. She goes on to say that she has “… an array of punishments to be handed out and know exactly what will hurt him most.” Ouch! ‘Discipline’ is not meant to ‘hurt;’ it is meant to teach life skills and social skills. Discomfort can teach, but it is not the point. The comments are a hoot! I got a kick out of the emotion I could hear in the chosen words in the comments. Now this woman is from the UK, so that will make a bit of a difference.

Discipline Children Do Not Punish Children

Discipline Children & Don't Punish Children

Karen from the FemGuide (http://www.femguide.com/) a website from Golf de Bendinat, Spain – Balearic Island (How exotic for us mid-westerners!) talks to us regarding the use of public discipline with children. She touches on the choices between Discipline Children Do Not Punish Children. This can be another slippery slope. Manipulative children begin to play a game and often test parents’ limits in public purposely to see how far they can go.

Has this happened to you?
Have you come up with a solution?
______________________________________________________________

Discipline Children Do Not Punish Children

“Is Public Discipline Good for a Child?”

“Is discipline good for a child? The answer is yes. The problem is many parents don’t understand exactly what discipline means. There are still many parents who believe discipline is a punishment. This is not true. The two are entirely different.”

“Discipline is a method or set of rules used by parents to teach and guide their children to do the right thing by making good choices.”

“Punishment is the consequence a child faces when he or she steps out of line by breaking the set of rules implemented by his or her parents.”

“Discipline is a method or set of rules used by parents to teach and guide their children to do the right thing by making good choices. …”

Discipline Kids without the Bureaucracy

Discipline Kids without the BureaucracyIs there an imbalance between education and administration in your school district? Are you seeking to educate and Discipline Kids without the Bureaucracy? Are there too many administrators, too much administration, and too little discipline and teaching in our educational systems?

Jerry O. Knight has written a short piece that relates to this idea in The Augusta Chronicle (http://chronicle.augusta.com/). He relates to the flexibility in educational choices for our youth and perhaps the excessive use of administration in the process of our educational systems, especially in his area.

I’m very interested in your thoughts. Read the excerpt below, go to the original piece, and then comment below.

Discipline Kids without the Bureaucracy

“Teach discipline and focus”

“It is amazing that the school boards for both Richmond and Columbia counties are willing to furlough teachers and increase class sizes, but at no time do I recall any reduction of the administration.”

Does this sound familiar? Discover more about how to “Discipline Kids with Common Sense Parenting,” Click this Link.

“That staff was the judge and jury, and carried out any discipline as needed – no running to the school board about how mistreated the children were. If the teachers are to educate, that education includes discipline – yet present-day students seem to …”

Are there too many administrators, too much administration, and too little discipline and teaching in our educational systems?

Mr. Berger’s piece is very short, but it does fit in with the theme of my current posts. Education is more than ‘book learning.’ Our educational systems are suffering under changes that tend to support ethical educational practices, yet unfortunately inhibit learning and discovery. Education is the base of much of our civilized world. Perhaps a more standardized approach to the education of teachers and the ethics involved in teaching would lead to this field having higher standards of practice, hiring, and would then be able to limit the interference of watchdog mentalities.

Discipline Kids with Common Sense

Discipline Kids with Common Sense ParentingTo Discipline Kids with Common Sense Parenting may not be as easy as it seems. Peter Berger of The Register Citizen (http://www.registercitizen.com/) has written an extensive piece in which he relates common sense parenting and not so common sense parenting. He has some strong opinions about one professional in particular and of our educational system in general.

This is a great piece!

______________________________________________________________

I admit that I have to agree with much of what Mr. Berger presents in this piece. I have been affiliated with the foster care system in the past. I fervently disagreed with the blatant policy to lower educational expectations so that children in this system can feel the self–esteem of success at the expense of knowledge and skill. I have seen this policy put young adults in jeopardy of further failure and sink their self-esteem lower that it would seem possible. I do not profess to know what steps to get our educational system back on track, but expecting less and less academically will only fill our society with individuals unable to cope or self-sustain.

How to Deal with Children about Rules

Jon Keller in the CBS Boston website (http://boston.cbslocal.com) in his column “Keller @ Large” commented on write-ups in Associated Press and a past edition of the Washing to Post on How to Deal with Children about Rules.’ He states that perhaps kids need more preaching and not less.

He is focusing on the children’s books the ‘Berenstain Bears.’

Have a look below.

“…I was surprised to learn how much heat they took from critics of their very popular series.”
“…it seems that the Berenstain Bears, however inartfully, have been filling a void when it comes to kids learning values, manners, and how to deal with real-life issues.”
““Those hokey bear parents appeared to spend a lot of time trying to teach their cubs good…”
Kids crave guidance about how to behave and what the limits are.”

____________________________________________________

Jon Keller talks against the people who, over time, have been ‘slamming’ the Berenstain Bears methods of implanting moral lessons with children. He seems to be disappointed, to say the least, about the negative comments. He talks about a recent incident in which high school girls were fighting, and their peers took video instead on taking any action. He uses this incident as an example of young people having needed more lectures, and not less, as they were growing up.

What do you think about the ‘Berenstain Bears’ book?

We want to hear you opinion about, not necessarily ‘lecturing’ kids, but imparting a moral lesson to children through children’s book (no matter how hokey)?

Discipline Children without Physical Punishment

Discipline Children without Physical PunishmentTo Discipline Children without Physical Punishment eliminates the scary results that PsyPost (http://www.psypost.org) has been related from an article in CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal). Those results are scary. We, parents, sometime forget to look at the future while acting in the present. Take a look below…

The study is quite impressive. It includes parents, who had been retrained to Discipline Children in a way minimizing or eliminating physical punishment. Words are powerful. Replacing the term, ‘physical punishment,’ with the phrase, ‘Discipline Children,’ seems to begin to change or reformulate belief systems and thinking patterns.

This piece is quite interesting, and it is from our neighbors to the north.

Discipline Children without Physical Punishment

“An analysis of research on physical punishment of children over the past 20 years indicates that such punishment is potentially harmful to their long-term development, states an article in CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal).”

“In a trial of an intervention designed to reduce difficult behaviour in children, when parents in more than 500 families were trained to reduce their use of physical …”

“Physical punishment is also associated with a variety of mental health problems, such as…”

______________________________________________________________

Discipline Children without Physical PunishmentIt seems the more that is known about the negative effects of physical punishment to Discipline Children, the more it becomes necessary to move past this archaic form of discipline.

Children today are well aware of the legal ramifications of using physical punishment, especially in the US. As children grow older they not only are subject to the after affects of physical punishment, but they tend to have negative long-term relationships with parents who have used this to Discipline Children.

Aggression in Children is in part a result of the use of physical punishment to Discipline Children. Also, see the post, ‘Aggression in Children.’

How to Discipline Children

When parents are Raising Kids, they are evaluating How to Discipline Children. We don’t look as far away as Asia or France to find this information. ML Nichols has a blog in which she brings are attention again to two books on French parenting.

How to Discipline ChildrenML Nichols is a co-founder and director of The Parent Connection, which is a nonprofit parent education group on the South Shore of Boston. She is a ‘parent-school consultant.’

Take a look at her short and straight to the point post. (An excerpt is below.) Just avoid getting too caught up in the evaluating. If it doesn’t work, change it. Otherwise talk to you other parents, your extended family, and of course, the teachers into whose hands you entrust your children.

“Two different perspectives on teaching and learning, certainly not exclusive to one country or another. With discipline, an expectation exists that…”
