I got tagged by Kris? at Paradise Found
I would have done it before but I just noticed a few minutes ago….
so… here it goes…
1. Pick up the nearest book.
2. Open to page 123
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the next three sentences.
5. Tag five people, and acknowledge who tagged you.
In fact, it matters very little if your children stiffen when you walk in the room. In a purely practical sense, misbehaviour is easier to address-and problems are easier to solve-when children feel safe enough with us to explain the reasons they did something wrong. Kids are more likely to come to us when they are in trouble, to look to us for advice, and want to spend more time with us when they can trust us, they’re more likely to so what we ask if we tell them it’s really important.
