Anger and Consequences Versus Empathy and Solutions

How do you typically feel when children misbehave?

      Angry?

      Frustrated?

      Irritated?

      Offended?

It’s natural to feel angry when children misbehave. However when we respond with harsh words and consequences, the children’s focus often turns to our response instead of their poor choices. In this class we look at why blame and shame don’t work well and how empathy can lead to solutions to children’s problems.
