Help me plan a philosophical discussion on the various schools of thought within GD. - Page 2
Has anyone attended a talk by Kim John Payne called The Soul of Discipline?
I absolutely LOVED his book (Simplicity Parenting), and his thoughts on discipline in the book are intriguing to me. Not dissimilar to UP, but he mentions that children under 7 are really not capable of making all the choices we throw at them, that it overwhelms them. I think he's talking less about "blue shirt or green shirt" choices, and more the "What should we do today / Where do you want to sit / When do you want to leave" choices, and that a parent's role at that age is more as a benevolent dictator, hearing them and genuinely considering their input, but ultimately being the one in charge and having the last word.
The section in the book is quite short (well, the whole book is quite short), but I know he does a lecture on discipline, so I was hoping someone had heard it.
That sounds super interesting -- wanna do another informative thread about that? I logged onto this forum, actually, to add some clarification questions to your UP thread....stay tuned.
If I can find some good online sources for PET stuff I'll post about that. I did take a class and think I have a good enough foundation but I really need to get some clarity and a refresher.
The CL thread is here:
I started the PET thread: http://www.mothering.com/community/t/1372376/pet-discussion-thread#post_17232687
Bumping because we have really made some good headway on these goals. I included links to our discussion threads as well as our hypothetical situations threads. I'll volunteer to do start a thread on positive expectations and CC sometime soon. Can anyone do TCS and some ones that I'm not thinking of? How about Positive Discipline and Playful Parenting?
