Who uses this approach? I've heard it several times before but it's really stuck with me this time. I struggle with telling my son something more than once and then getting really frustrated/mad at him when he doesn't do it right away. I've realized this is my own fault for not expecting immediate obedience. I also have allowed him to stomp away, grumble, whine and grouch on his way to doing a chore or other undesirable task. I've realized that this too is my own fault for allowing it. Now I tell him to "fix his face" if he's scowling and if he doesn't obey after the first time he's told OR he grumbles then he has an immediate consequence. Lately it's been losing electronic time or adding a chore for him to complete. This has really helped and I'm planning to keep this in mind with my 6 month old and start training her from the very beginning!!

For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother's womb...I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made...My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together...Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Psalm 139: 13-16
