March 13, 2009, Newsletter Issue #224: Separate the behaviour from the child

Tip of the Week

Our children deserve our unconditional love regardless of how they behave. When they behave badly, their actions need to be dealt with (with discipline) but they, as a human being, still deserve the same love. Avoid putting your child down with criticism at them as a person. Avoid calling them a bad child. Instead, tell them that you donīt like their current behaviour. It is best to keep the childīs self esteem built up at all times and the bad behaviour modified.
