The Kid’s Corral incorporates the research-based discipline approaches from the Love and Logic programs. Below is an excellent article from one of their founders, Dr. Charles Fay
PARENTING DURING THE PANDEMIC!
The pandemic has created the need for many resources to be delivered remotely. Several years ago, we developed a webinar version of our parenting curriculum that was intended to give busy, overwhelmed parents the option to take our highly effective parenting curriculum online. This Love and Logic Parenting Online webinar is available to support parents with skills that can help during this particularly demanding time. Parents will learn the following—and much, much more:
How to end arguing and manipulation
When parents can remain calm and respond to arguing with simple phrases, such as “I love you too much to argue” or “What did I say?” their children begin to learn that arguing and manipulating does not pay.
Setting limits without waging war
As many parents discover, setting unenforceable limits with kids often creates more problems than solutions. Learn the secret of setting limits that are enforceable by never telling a stubborn kid what to do—instead, only describe what you are willing to do or allow.
How to avoid power-struggles while helping their children learn to make good choices
Many of the power-struggles parents find themselves pulled into start when they try to ensure that their kids don’t make mistakes. Small mistakes and their associated consequences help kids develop the wisdom to avoid making larger ones later on.
Tools for neutralizing defiance
Parents can side-step power-struggles by responding to statements like “you can’t make me” by saying, “I’m going to have to do something about this…but not now. We’ll talk later.” Delaying consequences gives parents time to calm down and consider effective consequences.
How to replace anger and frustration with empathy
When we provide empathy before consequences our kids are forced to think about their poor decisions rather than our anger. That’s what really makes learning happen!
