Habit is the key. Doing the same thing over and over. The first few times, it may not make much of an impression, but the tenth time and the thirty-eighth time, and the seventy- third time... these are the pay off for faithfully training your children.

Meg said...

Routine, schedule, routine, schedule. Kids don't act out as much if they are comforted in the fact that they know what to expect! Thanks so much! ( meg.wilson@gmail.com )

consistency is a necessity.
Shepherding a child's heart, by Tedd Tripp is a great resource

ispeakbeanish said...

I agree with the previous commenters. Consistency in your discipline and boundaries is important. Routine in the day to day activities is also helpful.

Learning to understand what motivates each child. Lately, I've been remembering to praise my youngest child--it works wonders for her!

Lesha said...

Teaching them about God at a very early age is a great start. Thanks for the wonderful giveaway! :)

I like to spend lots of time with my kids, training them up in the way they should do things. Catching things before they become bad habits makes our lives so much better. I do try and give my kids growing responsibilities depending upon their ages, so they can feel like a contributing member of the family.

I would love to be entered in your giveaway.

I am all about routines and sticking with a routine. Kids need that. I can see a huge difference in the children that I watch (I run a daycare) that have a routine and those that don't.

All of the toys in our house have a bin with a lid, a written label and a picture of what goes in the bin stuck to the outside. She's been able to clean up since before she was two - sorting and organizing everything. And since the bins are clear it helps her to see what is inside without having to dump the whole thing out.

never give into whining because the next time will be worse

Hello, I think time out is a good disciplinary action. Our boys get 1 minute per age on the steps to upstairs. We put the timer where they can see how much time they have left. Please enter me in your drawing.

My husband leads worship so this would be great for him.
I'm in the nasty part of child training right now...the terrible 3's! I'm a bit overwhelmed.

Qtpies7 said...

Never say never. If you say you will never do this with your kids, you will. If you think it is something horrid and you speak against it, it will happen! LOL
Pray, pray, pray. God will show the way.

EASY by the baby whisperer helped us with our son when he was a newborn. Easy is a routine - Eat Activity Sleep Your time. It worked great for us. Thanks for the giveway.

One of my very favorite books is "Toilet Training in Less than a Day" by Nathan Azrin - it really works, at least it did for us!

I've been using those zippered pencil holders that go in 3 ring binders to organize the contents of games. Then I put the game board in a basket. I've managed to save a ton of space tossing most of the game boxes. :)

Thanks for a great giveaway. :)

Blessings!
They are so unique. My best tip is to have a digital camera ready. I get pictures of sweet faces and dirty ones - pretty little flowers and big oops's that I know I can never do justice to the story w/o a picture. Savor the moments - they grow so fast!

Repeating God's word to them over and over so they can remember it.

I keep a disposible camera in my purse. Great for capturing cute moments away from home when I don't normally bring my camera. It's fun to get them developed too. We recently got one developed and it had a few shots of my daughter when she was only a few months old. She's 2 1/2 now!

My favorite tip for kids is reading to them lots and lots.

Julie D said...

Get on the floor and play---often!

James and Andrea said...

I don't have kids yet, but I have younger brothers. I really like to get them one on one and focus on the fun things we can do together. Also, I notice that consistancy in rules and results of breaking them makes SUCH a difference. However, I know I have tons to learn!

my favorite tip for kids is lots of reading and talking and no tv. parky695 (at) hotmail (dot) com

What a great giveaway!

Tips - being patient whatever the circumstances. This is really hard to remember sometimes.

Having a schedule (not rigid - mind you) with themes for the day or week. I have a one-year-old and am used to work structure, so this has really helped me focus on my child's needs and education.

Jinxy & Me said...

Rules all have a reason, but you aren't obligated to explain the reasons! Thanks for the giveaway!

Schedule, schedule, schedule. Also, consistent disciplinary.
