I spend a good amount of time with my boys. I work from home and have the flexibility to adjust my schedule around my family. Because if this, I end up saying “no” and being responsible for disciplining them most of the time.
Like many primary care givers, I struggle with finding the balance between discipline and praise. Dad gets to be the good guy most of the time–especially during football season. I’m the “crazy mom” a few times a month.
Today, I made it a point to really pay attention to the boys and praise them for doing good. Guess what? They misbehaved less. Children do what’s necessary to get attention from their parents… even if it’s bad attention.
