9 basic rules in disciplining children

I was reading abs-cbn site and found this article:

1. Know your child. Establish a close relationship with your child as early as possible. Find out her hobbies, her likes and dislikes, and the people she hangs out with.

2. Model good behavior yourself. If you want your child to knock first before opening a door, make sure you do the same thing.

3. Keep your child busy and physically active. Be creative. Children, just like older people, do not like taking orders.

4. Allow your child negative feelings. Tell your child that she also has the right to feel angry and frustrated, but emphasize that there is a proper way of expressing those feelings. Encourage her to do something productive, such as painting, dancing, or playing a musical instrument.

5. Teach emotional vocabulary as early as possible. Use your words, not your hands. Recognize your child's feelings by saying, "I know that you're angry or upset" before telling her what should or should not be done. Make her feel that she is not a bad person, but someone who has not behaved correctly in a particular situation.

6. Consistency is key. Never give in to your child's wants just because she threw a tantrum. Positive discipline is not about spoiling your child but about learning to stand your ground.

7. Make your consequence a teaching moment. Punishments should be aimed at making your child realize the consequences of her actions and take responsibility for them.

8. Praise good behavior. Be the kind of parent that your child can talk to, not one who would just scream at her when she does something wrong.

9. Do your level best. Cut yourself some slack and let your child know that even Mommy sometimes makes mistakes.

For Apero

Oppps, it's almost 12 midnight and I'm still infront of my lappy. I have to prepare these for apero tomorrow night. It's easy to prepare though but the spices are kinda difficult to prepare. It will be my first try to I hope that my guests would at least love any of the flavor. Aside from that, tomorrow will be a busy day for me and I guess my kiné will forbid me to move much. Oppps! One last job, surf for seo elite reviews then I'll go to my kitchen. Happy weekend everyone

Make It A Priority

Stress and fatigue are two main reasons why pimples pop up last 2 days ago. Grgrgrg! I forgot to washed my face and took off my make-up so I ended up sleeping without cleaning my face. I was so tired from my errands left and right that I just went to bed immediately the moment I brought my son to his bedroom. See? I am not a good example so don't follow me. No matter how tired you are, make it a priority to at least wash your face with soap and water and moisturize it. There are acne home remedies of course to the rescue like ProNexin but good hygiene is still advisable. Agree?

Friday Fill-In May 20, 2011

1. I see ants at the terrace and found it disgusting.

2. When I can't find the right answer, all I do is (my head) scratch.

3. They begin to ask me as to when will I be coming back home in PI and when will I be giving them my shorts.

4. I live life to the fullest and that has been my view so many years earlier.

5. This I know: I'll enjoy every single day of motherhood.

6. Burger and fries for dinner.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to submit my assignments, tomorrow my plans include my kiné appointment and Sunday, I want to maybe go to the beach!

Another Costume

Our gala is getting closer. It will be this June 26. Rehearsal is getting more and more srious and etc. Some of the choreographies are not finish yet but we're working at it. Hopefully before the month ends, we'll be able to finalize them. In my case, I'm also practicing here at home when I'm free. Bought another costume that I'll be using for the classic choreography. For khalegy, no idea yet if our prof will be the one who'll provide us or vice versa. I washed this new costume yesterday and it looks better now. When I received it, it looked dirty and greyish. Now, I would say that it's white. Before I'll go for POS systems, what do you think about it? I mean my costume? I have 2 now so I'm hesitating if I'll use this one or my old one. I mean, I'd love to wear this of course but no idea yet as to how my prof would react when she sees me with this :-).

Sorry for the late post folks. I was searching for a treatment for meth addicts. I'd like to help a friend nor give her my advice but I was speechless when she told me about it. That's why, I researched few minutes ago about it in order for me to have an idea as to what's the best thing to do about it. If you don't know, meth addicts are rampantly increasing now.
