MOTIVATIONAL QUOTE OF THE DAY

Good managers don’t yell at or demean employees because it would be ineffective and unethical. Parents have no less duty to be tactful and respectful when dealing with their children.  -Michael Josephson, Character Counts

PARENTING WITH NONVIOLENT COMMUNICATION (NVC)  *******Parenting isn’t easy.  With that being said, if you take care of your children on every level from day 1, you’ll be rewarded with children you are proud of.  When teachers and child care providers tell you your child is a delight, you can rest assured all of your hard work is paying off.  The first instinct is to fight oppositional behavior, but if you remain calm, uncover and address the reason for the opposition, you can communicate sans violence.  This will set the tone for future interactions and you will be able to set rules and boundaries with minimal opposition.  You can demand respect all you want, but you’ll never really get it from your children (or anyone else) if you don’t earn it.*******
