Parenting is not always easy, especially when you have little ones who don’t always understand why something is considered right and some other things are considered wrong.
It’s our job as parents to shape our children, but what do you do when your parenting techniques are not really working?
You find new ways to discipline them!
But finding new ways is not always easy because you have to think outside of the box. This is why I love listening to audiobooks, podcasts, reading and asking trusted friends for advice, because sometimes they show you a different way to do things that will be effective with your children.
Earlier this year I discovered a new parenting technique that has been very effective with my children: humor! Yes, I know it sounds odd but it’s really works! Will it work for absolutely everything?, of course not, but it’s a great tool to have in your parenting kit. Once you learn more about it, you will understand how and when to use it with your own kids.
