What's new --- thoughts on catching them being good


I know many parents had thoughts about what they could do about improving their young child's good behavior? May be sharing toys with other children? Or enjoy going to bed after the "bedtime" routine has ended!


A child psychologist friend of mine used the simple term ......"catch them being good". As reasearch has shown over and over that behavior focused on or paid attention to will increase. Regadless whether it is a positve or a negative behavior!


You may find some information on the this website http://www.empoweringparents.com/free-downloadable-charts/behavior-chart-young-children.php helpful. Lots of great ideas and free downloads.




Norman Douglass (1868 - 1952)  a British writer so eloquently stated:


       “If you want to see what children can do, you must stop giving them things.”
