Disciplining with a Passion

"Children need love, especially when they do not deserve it." ~ Harold Hulbert

       Now that I have finally got us a new house, I figured it is time to pull out the big guns on disciplining my kids. I have great kids and I'm actually pretty proud of how well behaved they are. Well, Adrian my 3 year old daredevil could use some work. But I guess they could all use some fine-tuning and extra refining. I have learned from having four kids that a way of disciplining that works for one, may and probably will not work for another. Disciplining is not a one size fits all deal.

       Although my children are generally well behaved and respectful, they each have some irritating quirks that need to be nipped in the bud. I have been scouring the internet for new ways to discipline and have actually found some pretty interesting and creative ways to get the job done. Check out the links below and be prepared to be dazzled!
( I would like to apologize for the lack of pictures. I am using my Blogger App and am still trying to figure it out.)

This woman has some fantastic ideas that I can see really working. She also has a vid on you tube.

I love these ideas, as well. I like the fact that this woman believes in spanking but uses it in moderation. And I am a yeller so maybe this will help me simmer down.
