Parenting Strategy: Natural Consequences

In this conversation with Vicki Hoefle, founder of Parenting On Track and author of Duct Tape Parenting, we talk about natural consequences. The purpose of using natural consequences is to encourage children to make responsible decisions, not to force their submission. When a child makes a poor decision and the parents stay out of it, the child learns from the consequence, gains new information, and is in a position to choose differently the next time.

Parenting Strategy: Appreciations

In this conversation with Vicki Hoefle, founder of Parenting On Track and author of Duct Tape Parenting, we talk about appreciations. Parents often ask, "How do I get my kids to be nice to each other?" or "How do I get my kids to stop fighting?" The truth is whatever you are currently doing, probably stops the action and creates some sort of compliance - momentarily. Really parents want more than kids who just get along. Parents want kids who treat each other with respect, compassion, empathy and understanding. Listen in and let us know what you think.
