No Bribes, No Punishments

Or, as we say here, non ci saranno più conseguenze o premi. That’s one of the rules of positive discipline as I understand it and this simple change had begun to revolutionize the way I parent and think about my kids.

I was raised in an authoritarian household. What my father said was the law and there was no questioning it. Add to that an emotional chasm that could never be crossed and you end up with a person who has strange and antiquated ideas about fatherhood. So, I’m learning but it’s early yet and there’s so much to take in and put in to practice. Nonetheless,. I’m grateful to have stumbled onto the method. Be well.
