Tip Tuesday
Kids are great at pushing parents' buttons. But reacting with anger doesn't help. When you stay calm and under control, you deal from a position of strength. So, when your children's behaviors are frustrating, take a deep breath and explain what you want them to do. Remind them of the consequences of not doing it. Then offer a choice: Your children can change their behavior or accept the consequences.
