Hey guys! Just wanted to share with you the 6 L's of positive child guidance that I came up with for a Toastmasters speech.
Level- get down to the child's level.
Look- make eye contact.
Listen- find out what the child is feeling. Use your eyes and touch to listen as well as your ears.
Logical Consequences- let natural consequences rule- eg, you make the mess, you clean it up.
Lesson- recap with the child : "what did we learn from this?"
Love- hugs, kisses, let the child feel reconciled to you and other offended parties. When it's over, let it be over. Don't hold a grudge.
There ya go!
