Yesterday I had the pleasure of being interviewed by Mike Dlott, host of Preschool and Beyond, Co-Director of the Discovery Child Development Center, and Director of Discovery Tech in Morrisville/Cary North Carolina.
In this episode, titled "Rethinking Discipline", I talk about discipline strategies for children during their preschool years. This is a time when children start to become more independent and seek increasing control over their environment, resulting in more boundary testing and rulebreaking.
As parents, this is a critical time to teach children how to recognize and regulate their emotions and how to set clear expectations and limits, as well as for giving children the tools to resolve future conflicts.
