Lasting Bonds is about building a connected family in a disconnected world. If we can foster connection and peace in our families - in our own homes - I believe it will permeate out into society and make a positive, lasting impact.(less)

I'm passionate about the topics I write about - connected families, gentle parenting, and I love sharing this message.

Although, I must admit, I do hope one day to move on to fiction novels. I always enjoyed writing mysteries as a young teen. That's a dream for the future!(less)

Three Ways to Help Children Behave Better without Using Punishment

Photo Credit: Creative Child Magazine
Often a go-to for all behavioral problems, punishment is an extremely common method of behavior modification, but is it really the best way to help kids do better?

When we use punishment, our children are robbed of the opportunity to develop their own inner discipline-the ability to act with integrity, wisdom, compassion, and mercy when there is no external...

“So often, children are punished for being human. Children are not allowed to have grumpy moods, bad days, disrespectful tones, or bad attitudes, yet we adults have them all the time! We think if we don't nip it in the bud, it will escalate and we will lose control. Let go of that unfounded fear and give your child permission to be human. We all have days like that. None of us are perfect, and we must stop holding our children to a higher standard of perfection than we can attain ourselves. All of the punishments you could throw at them will not stamp out their humanity, for to err is human, and we all do it sometimes.”
Rebecca Eanes, The Newbie's Guide to Positive Parenting

“Tantrums are not bad behavior. Tantrums are an expression of emotion that became too much for the child to bear. No punishment is required. What your child needs is compassion and safe, loving arms to unload in.”
Rebecca Eanes, The Newbie's Guide to Positive Parenting

“When you've had one call after another and your little one is tugging on your shirt, remember what really matters. When the milk is splattered all over the floor and those little eyes are looking at you for your reaction, remember what really matters. It takes 5 minutes to clean up spilled milk; it takes much longer to clean up a broken spirit.”
Rebecca Eanes, The Newbie's Guide to Positive Parenting
