Have you heard of peaceful parenting? I’ve heard it, but I don’t know that much about it. I have to say that the idea of it is fantastic. The idea is that you never raise your voice to your child and that punishment can be replaced with discussions and insight.
The grounding you set is critical, because you really need to provide a loving and affectionate environment for your child. There is research that says that tribal communities did it best: they had skin to skin contact with the newborn for 23 out of 24 hours. The contact was meant to be reassuring and calm.
I’m sure that it is not realistic to never yell at your child. However, just think of the environment that you set when you begin every day and every encounter with a commitment to NOT yelling or raising your voice…Amazing!
