Knowing and Teaching the Final Desired Expectation-BFBN

We usually discipline when our kids act in a way we don’t want them to.  But how do they know what is expected of them?  I think sometimes we forget that part- that we have to teach them what to do, not just what not to do.  Katrina from Mama’s Organized Chaos is talking to us today about teaching what we want from our kids.

She writes:
In my journey to find our “discipline” method, and what works well for our family, I find myself coming back to the root of the idea: expectations. Without expectations, there would be no disciplinary action.

My husband and I believe in setting high expectations. We believe that, if we set high expectations, our daughter will rise to the challenge. I used the same idea when teaching high school, and I am a firm believer that it works. It not only provides a challenge for children that they are often longing for, it shows them that you believe in them.
In addition to setting high expectations, I think it is important to know the end goal. What is the final expectation, not the “right now expectation”? The final expectation is the real expectation that needs to be taught and focused on.”
