The Most Important Discipline Practice - Creative Child
How do you build self-discipline in your child? By modeling it yourself. (D'oh. I know.)
Rebecca Eanes, the Positive Parenting guru, writes, "The first step to in this practice of self-discipline is to understand your story. This requires some serious self-reflection and it could be uncomfortable or even painful at times, but it’s a necessary part of growth. If we don’t face our stories head on, we can remain stuck in unhealthy or unhelpful patterns with our children. This could prevent us from connecting with our children or from providing the unconditional love, acceptance, and support they need to grow well."
Good reminders in the article, which is short so you can read it in a jif here.
