|Read ♫ How to Behave So Your Preschooler Will, Too! ♒ eBooks or Kindle ePUB free
In the beginning I thought this was your average how to book, but as I read Dr Sal Severe s profound words on how to care for children in order to teach them how to behave, I started to sense a difference in how I talked to my students, how I taught them new things, and especially how to deal with situations where they simply do not want to work with you It was eye opening, sincere, and put so simply I just kept thinking to myself, This is doable I can see myself following these words of wisdom and succeeding in my classroom and outside of it But actions speak louder than words You need to apply yourself, and be strict on making these changes We are the adults, and they are the children if they win, it is because we are LETTING THEM WIN Patience, communication, and above all CONSISTENCY will help in getting these children s development soaring as they grow older Birth to five years of age is an imperative time to teach children good values, manners, and confidence I believe this book has all the information needed in order to make this possible Make the charts, follow through with the rewards, and most importantly follow through when disciplining Giving in to tantrums will work for the time being, but will set us up for failure in the long run Put in the work, because it is worth it Your child is worth it. So far, this has helped me understand better what on earth is going on in my 4 year old s head Honestly, this is like taking a moment during the day to refresh, it s so motivating After reading a chapter or two, I can face my boys with acontrolled and understanding attitude It s been eye opening. It was a decent book, with some good principles But, at the end of the day I felt like it was waycommon sense don t yell at your kids, be consistent, tell your preschooler to use their words than it was really practical solutions Even the places that proposed to be practical didn t go into great detail For example, the section on what to do if you have a time out protester was only a couple of paragraphs, yet the chapter on time outs was the longest in the book.That said, there were some great sections The section that helped to diagnose why the child is behaving a certain way and solving each of those problems a little differently was good I also liked the parts that clearly explained the mind of a young child and why giving in even once can result in a setback.Probably the two most helpful parts were 1 the suggestion that you should work on one or two problem behaviors and get those going before starting on something else it s always better to go too slowly than too quickly and 2 keeping a chart for yourself to count the number of time outs and how they went and watch it over the course of a few weeks to decide if you are making progress even slowly or if you need to adjust expectations solutions.I d probably give it 3.5 instead of 3 stars. I am ambivalent about this book On the one hand, I appreciate the common sense, loving principles this method is based on On the other hand, I disagreed with several of thespecific examples that were meant to highlight these principles.Even though the author claims not to approve of labeling children, he uses labeling all the time in his examples You are a polite child You are a quiet child, etc Saddling a child with the Quiet one label is still restrictive and dictates who YOU think they OUGHT to be, not who they really are.Also, another reviewer mentioned the constant discussion about how children need to learn to be a good listener, which essentially just means, do everything I tell you when I tell you to do it I am pretty sure most preschoolers can listen very carefully, understand every word of a request and still choose not to follow it There has to be a better way to address that than insulting the child s intelligence by suggesting that she was not listening I ll keep this one on the back burner, but its influence on my parenting style may be minimal. This book is helpful and funny A surefire way to send a room full of preschoolers into hysterics, is to say the word poopyface It will hurl them to the floor with laughter In addition potty talk, lying, and whining, this book addressed the basics of discipline as teaching Why is my child driving me crazy What can I do to make it stop Dr Severe feels sad for the parents who haven t figured out how fun preschoolers can be because they haven t figured out the tools to eliminate the annoying behaviors.Everyone knows the best way to improve behavior is to emphasize the positive This book actually shows how in specific, helpful examples With Dr Severe s guidance, I chose two behaviors I wanted Q to improve hitting brother and not obeying the first time I turned them into two positives being kind to brother and obeying the first time Then I made a reward chart by drawing pictures of these two behaviors and told Q how great he is at these things and drew 10 stars next to each one and explained that when I saw him doing these things he could color in a star When ten stars were colored, he could earn a reward, which I also drew a picture of make a treat with mom, go to park It worked like a charm and now we have moved onto putting on socks shoes coat right when I ask, and using a tissue. This is a helpful, straightforward guide that gave me several ideas to improve my parenting style. |Read ☽ How to Behave So Your Preschooler Will, Too! ♠ During This Challenging Time In A Child S Life, Behavior Can Seem So Out Of Control That Parents Throw Up Their Hands And Wonder, Why Can T I Enjoy My Child Who Better To Turn To Than Dr Sal Severe, The Parenting Guru And Bestselling Author Of How To Behave So Your Children Will, TooBased On Dr Severe S Philosophy That A Child S Behavior Is Often A Reflection Of Parents Behavior, How To Behave So Your Preschooler Will, Toowill Teach Parents With Children Between The Ages Of Three And Six To Adjust Their Behavior To Better Handle Fussing At Bedtime How To Set Limits Tantrums Crying Scenes When Leaving A Play Date Sibling Rivalry Preparing To Start School Toilet Training And With Practical And Easy To Implement Suggestions, This Book Shows Parents How To Manage Anger, Prevent Arguments, And Promote Their Child S Physical, Emotional, And Language Development It Is Certain To Become A Bible For Stressed Out, Exhausted Parents Everywhere I quite liked this book It is written in such a way that each chapter can be read separately so you don t have to read the whole book to get the message you can read it on an as needed basis The biggest thing that I got from it was a desire to focuson positive parenting Punishment should be rarely used and if you use something like say time out many times a day it is simply not working He teaches how to usepositive techniques and punishment only in rare occassions There was a lotin this book and I think each reader would take something different I liked it a lot and could see myself buying this book someday.
