A great article up today on Dr. Laura Markham's site about how to transition to positive parenting. Personally, this transition was HARD for me in the beginning! Every time I fell back into my old ways of yelling or very un-peaceful discipline, I would beat myself up and think "this will never work!" I'm thankful I had a lot of people who encouraged me to stick with it, because through years & years of practice and never giving up.....it did get easier and our family now communicates with each other in ways that are mutually respectful and effective! (Most of the time!! Let's face it, none of us are perfect!)
Whether you've taken a RCB or Positive Parenting class or not....we're all a work in progress & trying our best to be great parents. I hope this article inspires you to keep trying....and to keep learning!
