    Another wonderful article firm believer in reinforcing positive behavior not that certain negative behaviors need some measures to correct but much same with time outs that were popular in child discipline to emphasize consequences happen from our behaviors. I appreciate such a wonderful insight and some practical advise how to enforce the good behavior. I like how you say that catch them at being good. Be nice agree that this was available growing up. But I think was there impart in our teaching years ago. Enjoyable read and bring up many things about this subject. Good food for thought.

  2. Hi Becky,
    What a wonderful article, thank you.
    This is great for me to read as a grandma too.
    My daughter has 2 little boys, and though she does a lot of these things, I’m still going to send her your article.
    The “gossiping” technique is new to me, and I love it. It going to be something I will enjoy doing with my grandbabies.
    Thanks again,

  3. Hi, I enjoyed reading your article on Positive Behavior and catch Kids Being Good. There’s a lot of helpful and interesting information. I agree with you, kids love our attention. I think when my kids where little, I didn’t reward them enough when they had good behavior. Thank you for sharing!

    Warm Regards,

  4. Too often we focus on the negative. Not just with our children but in life in general. I have found that Positive Reinforcement with my children helps me see more of the positive things in my day. There are still times when I need to discipline my children but those are few and far between now. Life is so much easier when you look for the good instead of the bad. Especially with our children.

      Thank you for your feedback, Patrick. I’m glad you’ve found positive reinforcement beneficial, too. It really helps cut down on the discipline issues.

    Great article! I love the approach you take here! I think you hit it spot on – we as parents tend to get as much done as possible while are kids are “distracted” or playing nicely. While that’s not totally wrong (since we do need to get stuff done when we can) I think we need to be intentional about (exactly what you said) paying attention when they are actually behaving. Not just jumping in when something goes wrong or they need our attention. I appreciate all of the resources you had as well, very helpful for parents 🙂
