Punishments don’t work

We can’t teach kindness while yelling.

We can’t teach patience while impatiently telling them to stop their meltdown.

When we forget…

“that growth, development, and maturation are natural processes, we lose perspective. We become afraid our children will get stuck and never grow up.” – Gordon Neufeld

Leaning into connection and creating a dreamy relationship with our kids is the key to helping our children learn all the important lessons we are wanting to teach them.
