Managing behaviour positivelyIf there is one topic that almost all parents find hard to manage it’s – how to discipline your child? Professional Psychologist, Helen Reese, joins us for a chat on communication and behavioural issues. The girls chat about managing behaviour in a positive way, how to set structure and boundaries for your little ones and the importance of mum and dad being consistent and following through.
Different discipline techniques
So your child has a screaming tantrum at your local shopping centre; what do you do? Do you deal with it then and there or at home? What about the Super Nanny’s naughty corner; what do we really think of it? The truth is, there are lots of different techniques available for disciplining a child. The girls chat about using ‘time out’, having to leave places early, the naughty corner and more. It’s not all about the bad behaviour either. They look at ways of rewarding good behaviour and using positive reinforcement effectively.
speech – when is it normal for kids to start?
When a baby says their first word and starts talking is one of those milestones that parents love to compare and boast about. It’s really good for all of us to know when it’s normal for kids to start and how to help them develop their language. Speech Pathologist, Gillian Fong, guides us through issues like when to stop the baby talk, talking a bit above the level of your child and ways to encourage your child to speak.
