Training & Discipline Techniques For Your Kiddos (A.K.A. Civilizing Those Darn Sin Natures!)

"Respect your children more than your closest friends." -Susan Bradrick

This week, my friend Christin (Journey to a Gracious Woman) and I will be hosting a little series on civilizing our kiddos! You know, the training and discipline thing...yea, pretty important!

For part of my (completely haphazard) Reclaiming Your Life series, I was going to be writing about the importance of our children being trained and disciplined so that they bring us delight instead of shame. I saw that Christin was also going to be writing about the subject, so I contacted her about "tag-teaming." She was all for it! I am looking forward to her posts, and I hope you will stick around for mine (even though I only have training tips for babes three and under!).

Head on over to Christin's today for her article, "The Duty of Discipline." She is also having a giveaway!

Here is our series schedule (hmmm..a series within a series...):
  • Tuesday @ Journey to a Gracious Woman: Topic–The Duty of Discipline plus a Giveaway!
  • Wednesday @ Like a Warm Cup of Coffee: Topic– Direct Disobedience
  • Thursday @ Journey to a Gracious Woman: Topic–Winning Over Whining & Bad Attitudes

Sarah Mae,
Where did you get the Susan Bradrick quote? I'm wondering because I'm looking into a few of their resources (love her 24 hours...)Anyhow, I'd like to know what you recommend!

This series is going to be great! As you saw over on my blog, I have been busy at the task of training my little ones in the way of manners, obedience, and sharing...and I still have a long way to go! LOL!

I needed this series today. My 6 year old had direct disobeience issues and the 5 and 2.5 yr old were whinning for my attention all day. At 7:00, about 30 minutes after they all should have been in bed, I called in reinforcements. I was almost in tears. It is one of those days where I question my vocation and pray for grace!!!!! I can't wait for the series.
