If you decide on a neutral place this can also save on travelling time for you both as you can meet half way. It shows reasonable co-operation, good fun stop for the kids in between, and a public safe place if tantrums, poor behaviour or abusive language is normal.
Oftentimes, divorced (or divorcing) parents pull back on discipline during this difficult time, mistakenly believing that this will help their children better handle the situation. Most experts agree that this strategy can be harmful. Leniency during a divorce has the tendency to elicit a wave of new undesirable behaviors in children. Divorce is hard on kids. It can lead to feelings of hurt, fear and instability. The best way to get them through the changes ahead is to try and remain as predictable as possible in regards to your expectations, discipline style and punishment. With so many other things changing in their lives during a divorce, they need to understand that the rules (and their consequences) remain the same.
Looking back I remember being absolutely worn out during the process. But I would do it all over again if I had to. The month or two of sleep deprivation was definitely worth the full night’s sleep I now enjoy with all three of my kids! And with them all being so close in age, had I not done this, I could have been getting up every night for years! So if you’re looking for a way to get your baby to sleep through the night, give this process a try! I would also love feedback on how this worked for you and I am available for any questions and can be contacted through my email below.
Your mood, your age, the age of your children, the weather (maybe it’s raining), have you eaten lately or are you starving and cranky, are you PMSing, are you having a bad hair day. I could go on and on but you get my point.
First of all, I couldn’t help but notice the puff corn was smaller than the puff corn in the Chester Cheetah brand. Since my daughter is only a year old, this is probably a good thing from a parenting stand point. But, as an adult who will share this with her (to make sure it gets eaten before it goes bad); I don’t really appreciate the smaller pieces. Granted, it’s probably the same overall quantity. But, it doesn’t look like it.
A couple of other arguments stem from this point as well. Firstly, what is okay? Could it be that if we weren’t smacked we might have more deeper and meaningful friendships? Better relationships? Lasting marriages? Feel less depressed? Perform better at work? Have a better outlook and attitude towards life?
Praise the good behavior you see in your children; this is what good parents do. Your children crave your attention above all else. If kids cannot grab caregivers’ attention with good behavior, they resort to poor behavior. Parents who neglect to focus on the child’s good behavior by praising them for it may actually be encouraging the child to act in negative ways.
I’m also not a huge fan of the cheese on this puff corn. The cheesy variety of the Chester Cheetah brand is much better. With that brand, it really is like eating a different version of Cheetos. With this brand, I taste more salt than actual cheese.
