24. Making Every Discipline Time Constructive
Sometimes parents believe that once they’ve given consequences to their children, the job is finished. They’ve done their duty and fulfilled their responsibility. Unfortunately, tension often remains. Discipline is not complete until the positive relationship between the parent and child is restored. A Positive Conclusion is simply a discussion you have with your children after they act inappropriately. The discussion is a debriefing time to clarify the problem, talk about a better response, and restore closeness in the relationship with them. During this episode, parenting coaches Dr. Scott Turansky and Elena Zwetsloot are discussing how to make sure that each discipline time ends positively and that cooperation and responsiveness increase over time. We offer practical advice and ideas on how to best support your children and how to focus on the end parenting goal, a changed heart.
