Hope you all had a nice weekend! Today I would like to you about "parenting".
Do you follow a particular method of parenting? You know like the "Baby whisperer" method or "Gina Ford" method or Supernanny's method.
I think when my daughter was a baby I was mostly following the Baby Whisperer methods. Her approach fitted with me. It seemed more human I guess.
As she become a toddler Supernanny's methods appeal more to me and my hubby.
So we start implementing the "time out" method and the "reward" method. Sometimes she is ok with it but most of the time she hates being put in time out. I guess all kids hate it. Giving her hugs and talking to her like she is an adult seems to work better though. So when my friend Suzie sent me the below video I was quite intrigued:
The concept of the "love house" sounds really good to me. If by showing my daughter love I will solve the problem of tantrums then I might give Naomi Aldort method a go. For the next month I will scrap the "time out" method.
My daughter is a confident child and I want her to be confident for the rest of her life.
I don't want her to think like her mummy that she is not good enough.
What do you think about this new type of parenting? Or maybe is not at all new for you and you already deal with you children tantrums and struggles the same as Naomi? I would live to hear from you and see how you make your home to be a "love house" and note a "war home".
For now I pledge that I will treat my daughters tantrum and demands different and in a more loving way. There are lots of videos about Naomi's methods on YouTube so even if I don't have her book I will still have lots of information.
