Putting Positive Parenting Into Play

The kids and I have been standing in a circle together and having moments of reflections and affirmations. Yesterday we asked the question:
"Who wants ___[insert a name here]________ to talk nicer?" We filled in the blank with each of our names, and we raised our hand if we wanted them to talk nicer. Everyone wanted everyone else to talk nicer and communicate better. We then all vowed to talk nicer to each other.

Today we will be focusing on the moments that make us happy and releasing moments that make us angry or stressed.

Thursday we will be saying one nice thing about each person.

This weeks affirmations for myself:
-they will follow my lead, so lead by example
-they will talk to each other the way I talk to them (i.e. yelling, frustrated, stressed, short tempered, huffy.)
-Don't sweat the small stuff (and it's all the small stuff)
