We all make choices and engage in behavior that creates the next experience. Consequences should not be used as punishments~
They need to be:
• Naturally or Logically connected to the behavior
• Known in advance when possible
• Given in a firm but calm voice
• Easy to apply and make sense to the child
• Spoken without yelling or anger, you are not the enemy
Give children the chance to try again as soon as possible… you want to help them see they can be successful!
