“Where did we ever get the crazy idea that in order to make children do better, first we have to make them feel worse? Think of the last time you felt humiliated or treated unfairly. Did you feel like cooperating or doing better?” – Jane Nelson
Honestly, have nothing to add to further explain my agreement with this point of view. Pretty self-explanatory. Lead by example, be gentle, don’t give in to temptations to yell, insult, punish, and degrade your kids. They are learning about life from YOU. Teach them the right things. Teach love and respect.
