Read in November, 2009

I learned so much from this book. It has changed the way I treat my children. I give them ownership for the mistakes they make, and help them to feel okay about making those mistakes in the first place. I no longer believe that punishment has to include an element of "feeling bad" about what you did. Instead, I help them to fix the problem. But I don't rescue them, or clean up for them, like I did before.

Also, no more rewards! Threw out the sticker charts! Teaching them that they do things becasue they are the right things to do, not because you are going to get something for it.

So much more, but these are my main take-aways from this book.
