She is a psychotherapist and the Executive Director of The Center for Connection in Pasadena, California, where she offers parenting consultations and provides therapy to children and adolescents.
- Much of what we do in the name of discipline is counter-productive.
- The original meaning of the word “discipline” is to teach.
- To effectively discipline (to teach kids skills to do better in the future), children have to be in a state of mind in which they can learn.
- Consequences can be counter-productive.
- If you’re being an effective disciplinarian, you should be disciplining less over time.
- “Time-outs” don’t teach kids anything, but taking the time to step away from the situation to talk to your kids does teach.
