  • Take away the absolute favorite toy and don't give in..keep finding different discipline methods until ur child gets the message..good luck!

  • depending on the age of the child, i have a conversation explaining why what they are doing is bad .....and we sit and reflect on the behavior for a small amount of time....

  • i take five minutes to myself calm down. then approach her and ask her if she knows what she did wrong, if not i explain and tell her we dont do that. then when she is calmer i ask her if she wants to do something different than what we were doing.
