Discipline

"Tell me, I'll forget. Show me,
I'll remember. Involve me, I'll
understand." 
 
- Chinese Proverb 
 
This gem of a quote really applies
to parenting. 
 
Let's say your son Bobby does
something "bad". Here are a few
ways you can react... 
 
- The "Tell me" way 
 
"Bobby, no yelling! Go to your
room!" 
 
- The "Show me" way 
 
"Bobby, stop yelling! You hurt my
ears! Go to your room!" 
 
- The "Involve me" Way 
 
"Bobby, we don't yell unless it's
an emergency. Yelling hurts Mommy's
ears. You don't want to do that, do
you?" 
 
Catch my drift? ;-) 
 
In our kids martial arts classes,
we do a whole lot of the "Involve
me" Way. We don't have many rules -
but we're very disciplined about
sticking to them. 
 
We teach kids WHY each rule is
important. We've found that when
kids understand the logic behind a
rule... 
 
They're WAY less likely to break
it.     Follow us on Facebook
