We are into February already and it has been a great start to a new and fabulous year with lots of positive changes, that's why I'm sharing a new tool with you from our family meeting. We call this our new time out! We have a lot of fights in the morning which puts our day off on the wrong foot. I'm sharing this quick video about how we use it in hopes it can help your family too!
A quick summary of what we do with our new time out:
1. Make a rule to STOP and reflect
2. Take a moment to come back with a better response
3. Stop the fight before it starts
I hope this helps you with those tough moments and to enable better communication with your kids that doesn't involve yelling or someone walking away angry. I believe giving our kids the tools to empower themselves is the most important gift we can give them!
How do you stop conflicts with your kids before they start?
I'd love to hear from you! Comment below or join me on Facebook and Twitter too.
