I pity that poor woman! I started all that good behaviour with ds twins from the off and it seems to have worked. I didn't have an expert though just used common sense. I had heard about using positive diversions rather than "don't do ..." but that was through watching "Child Of Our Time."
The only time I find the ignore bad behaviour rule impossible is when they are knocking lumps out of each other! But that is just me!
I enjoyed this especially as I could point out to DH, that no matter how annoying our DSs can be they don't beat each other up and they go to bed when they are told! Made me appreciate what I've got, but I did think they were a lovely family anyway
Having autistic children, i found it 'reassuring' in another way!
I AM a good mum- and HAVE been doing the right things!!!
Though i know deep down all this....i needed to watch this programme to be sure- my family and friends have not been supportive with my boys and that then lead me to think i was the reason for how they were- but this programme has restored my faith!
I've just gon right off the psychologist for telling the mum off for stopping her son from banging his plate on the table and singing 'The wheels on the bus'- o.k so the mum may have been a bit over the top when she told him off- but i would not be happy either if my boys did that at the table!
It just shows I suppose that when you spend time, you get results. Unfortunately most of us try to iron, cook, tidy house as well as positive parent, which I suppose when it falls down.
I have certainly tried more with ds1, and the results were just like the program. Will keep watching for more tips. Reassuring to see someone else more short tempered than me, and a child behaving worse than mine.
