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.
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.
