A good friend of mine sent me a link to this BBC video - How the British Discipline Kids.
It’s so true that if I didn’t laugh I would cry and if I didn’t cry I would laugh. So as a compromise I just did both and as you can imagine it was a little messy.
We have stickers instead of a Star Chart and we have a Naughty Chair instead of a Naughty Step but the principles are all the same. I love my little darlings to the moon and back but my goodness they test my patience on a daily basis. I guess that is what parenting is all about, eh?
“My two certainly tell me that they love me by talking to me all the time.”
As I keep telling myself I wouldn’t change anything in the world :)
