We remember time ins not time outs.
We don't send our children out of the room- unless it is imminent danger for us or them ;).
We use play to connect to our children.
We ask for hands and eyes.
We do RE DO's often.
We say can you try that again in a big girl voice?
Or Whoa.....can we try that again with respect?
We remember that our children all come from "hard places" and need our understanding!
Some days are just PLAIN HARD!!!!!!
Some are better!!
