Positive discipline really pays off. As I write this Addy and Dori are standing at the Lego table playing with a younger friend, Gabrielle, who is visiting for the morning.
Gabrielle yells, “No baby!” when Dori holds a toy she doesn’t want her to have.
Addy’s response: “You don’t have to yell at her. Just take care of the problem.”
Gabrielle indicates she isn’t sure what to do.
“Well, take her hand off it,” Addy suggests. “Give her another toy. Trade her. Trade her.”
