The book I am wanting to try is Love and Logic for young children. My friend who teaches with me and has two boys close to my boys ages has been using it at home and has tried some of it in her classroom. She has told me some of the tricks like "Energy Drain" for times when your child is misbehaving and you are having to spend extra energy in correction, redirection, talking... your child comes up with a way to replace your energy - i.e. child selected chores, appology, time out.. Your child has a voice in the discipline.

Manda I know you said you would veer away from Creative Correction but I would love to read it. I have heard Lisa talk about her parenting style on Focus on the Family and for a busy mom she had some wonderful ideas.

Busy times is when my kids push the limits, have meltdowns, act out...Those are the times that I find it hard to keep myself together and handle discipline the way I know I should.
