Re: Had to stop back in to share this with you.

Hi 1TimeSoldier,

Sorry to get back to you 3 months later but my time has been spent, well, with my children.  I could not access the link you sent regarding the 4 YO boy.  I'd love to see it if you could send it again!  Thanks!!

Believe Me

I understand how difficult it is at times.

I have a 16 yo son.

Thanks Kimere!
I'd love to shower Devyn with hugs and kisses every second of every day ... but when she gets so wild and crazy sometimes, something tough has to be done.  There is no other way.  Accept this, I MUST!

Doing the right thing is always hard

The hardest thing we ever do is look at those sweet little faces and say no.Mine is 18 now

and me learning to say know made a big difference.

Nickie ...
I long for the day when I punish my little girl less.  Devyn had another bad day at preschool yesterday.  More punishment last night.  She was so tired, though, that she fell asleep at 7:00 p.m.  Perhaps her fatigue played into her poor decisions at school.  I like the idea of locking the books away ... after she learns to read ... right now, reading books to her helps calm her down (especially the one entitled, "Polite Princesses." )  Thanks!!

Thanks jaida ...
I've printed the poem you shared; did you write that yourself?  I'm heading over to your corner of blogit to read and chat some more.  Thank you!

Divine,
you will actually see that, after a while, you won't have to punish a lot anymore. Once Devin knows what her boundaries are, she'll get into line. I don't know how our mum did it, but she only used her eyes. My sister and I could tell what she meant by just looking at her... She did not often punish, but when she did, it was something you'd remember for long. Once she locked away my books, and I could not read for two weeks. Be sure that I did not do the same bad thing again!!!

Something Worked

"Discipline is the uncompromising stick that does not allow one to stand at ease".  Children can be so unpredictable in their behavior and yet, once they recognize that you are serious with your disciplinary measures, they will fall in line.  Take heart from the following:

Discipline can be tough but it toughens,

For it breaks the stubborn will, stills the untamed tongue

And brings the wayward into submission.

Discipline can be tough but it toughens,

For it challenges towards a deeply rooted commitment,

That snatches one from the fire and from the icy clutches of death,

And allows one to emerge as a stalwart of grace.
