Default Re: Discipline can "fix" a problem

I cannot tell you how many times I've just sat and cried out, "I just want this to STOP!" The thing is, when I focus on stopping the behavior, instead of discipling the child through it, I get so caught up in the behavior that I tend to forget the child, which usually tends to escalate whatever I want to stop It's why I think it's so important to not only have a list of ways you will set your child up for success, but a good large toolbox of ways to deal with things in the moment they are happening. You cannot prevent every misbehavior, being able to roll with the punches is a very important aspect of motherhood.
