“Don’t Be Afraid Of Making Mistakes”

“What do you first do when you learn to swim? You make mistakes, do you not? And what happens? You make other mistakes, and when you have made all the mistakes you possibly can without drowning - and some of them many times over - what do you find? That you can swim? Well - life is just the same as learning to swim! Do not be afraid of making mistakes, for there is no other way of learning how to live!" ~ psychiatrist, Alfred Adler.

Don’t be afraid to try something new with your child in respect to discipline. You will make mistakes, that’s a given. When you do, apologize to your child. Tell them you’re doing the best you can and that sometimes you will make mistakes. What a great way to be a positive role model for your child.
