Make Discipline Opportunities

Like all parents, I have good parenting days and days where I wish I had done better. Seven parenting opportunities later, we are figuring some of this out.

On my day off today, I took my boys to swim lessons. When I pulled in the parking lot was empty. I intentionally unbuckled my three year old first and asked him to stand on the sidewalk and wait for me. The timing was perfect we were on time and if he failed he was not in danger. He did great! He waited while I took the stroller out of the trunk and buckled in his baby brother. I then had the opportunity to praise him. If he had failed, I could have just as easily scolded him and buckled him into the stroller. Hopefully, next time (when it is important that he stand and wait) this training will pay off.
