Tuesday Topics are back with this question from Emily:
How do you incorporate your child’s triggers and mental health needs into consequences and discipline?
My early elementary-age daughter recently damaged some of her clothes, which is something we’ve battled on and off for three years. Under normal circumstances, this would result in significant consequences.
But I also know that this time of year is very rough for her and that she’s facing a big transition with school starting this week. Trying to balance grace for her but also teaching her boundaries of unacceptable behavior is an area I really struggle with a parent and I’d be happy to hear your communal advice.
This is a great question from Emily. Many of you can contribute, even it’s to say, “Me too, I have this same struggle!”
I love it when we help another mom, which actually helps many of us. Please chime in! No comment or thought is too small or simple. We want to hear from you.
If you have a question you would like me to share for a Tuesday Topic, please email it to [email protected] with “Tuesday Topic” in the subject line.
I look forward to hearing from you.
