    Does anyone have disciplining techniques for a 19 month old? We are trying not to shout or spank and are using time out with a timer but he still is having a lot of difficulty. He slaps at us and headbutts us and whacks us with his toys and sometimes it is hard to keep a calm head and not yell at him to go to his time out chair.

    CARE OF DR. PHIL

    Parenting

    Age-Appropriate Discipline Techniques


    The disciplining techniques parents use should be based on age-appropriate expectations. For example, explaining to a 13-month-old why she is being punished for hitting her sibling isn't going to get you very far if she can't yet understand reasoning. Using guidelines outlined by the American Academy of Family Physicians, Dr. Phil suggests the following discipline techniques and when they are effective to use.

    Positive Reinforcement
    Focusing on good behavior instead of bad behavior. Parental attention is one of the most powerful forms of positive reinforcement.


    Redirecting
    This technique literally involves the simple act of redirecting your child to appropriate behavior.


    Verbal Instruction/Explanation
    Going over what you want your child to do and why can help him/her develop good judgment.


    Time-outs
    Time-outs involve physically removing your child from a problem situation. Sending your child to a neutral and "boring" area, such as the corner of a room with no toys or television, and ignoring him/her until he/she is calm and quiet. Time-outs should not last longer than five minutes. One minute of time-out per year of life is a good rule of thumb.


    Establishing Rules
    Explain your rules and be prepared to repeat them until your child learns to follow them on his/her own.


    Grounding
    A technique effective with school-age children and teenagers, it involves restricting your child to a certain place, usually home or his/her room, as punishment. For example, "grounding" your child on a Saturday night as punishment for breaking curfew on Friday night.


    Withholding Privileges
    Children should learn that privileges come with responsibility and they need to be earned. In order to be effective, this technique should be used infrequently. A privilege that is valued by the child, such as watching television or playing with friends, should be removed.

    Birth to 18 Months

    Effective:

    Positive Reinforcement
    Redirecting

    Ineffective:

    Verbal Instruction/Explanation
    Time-outs
    Establishing Rules
    Grounding

    18 Months to 3 Years

    Effective:

    Positive Reinforcement
    Redirecting
    Verbal Instruction/Explanation
    Time-outs

    Ineffective:

    Establishment of Rules
    Grounding
    Withholding Privileges

    4 to 12 Years

    Effective:

    Positive Reinforcement
    Redirecting
    Verbal Instruction/Explanation
    Time-outs
    Establishment of Rules
    Grounding
    Withholding Privileges

    13 to 16 Years

    Effective:

    Positive Reinforcement
    Verbal Instruction/Explanation
    Establishment of Rules
    Grounding
    Withholding Privileges

    Ineffective:

    Redirecting
    Time-outs

    At that age it is a lot of repetition when it comes to discipline. Get down to his level and firmly say "no hitting" or what ever it may be, and keep it simple. Redirection is pretty easy at that age because they can be easily distracted or rather attracted to something else. For example, if he hits you with a toy truck, calmly and firmly say "no hitting" and then bring out the play dough instead (or whatever). I also found that with my girls anyways their behaviour often stemmed from other things - tired, long day, etc. or even just needing some exercise. If he seems overly aggressive maybe it's time to go outside to the park for awhile.

    Hope that helps.

    Great idea! Help your toddler know which shoe goes on which foot by cutting a sticker in half.

    Dear Pregnant, Child-Less Self…


    Kelly is a mom, wife, writer, smart-ass, recovering perfectionist, and blogger extraordinaire. She likes long walks at night with her crying baby, a tall bottle of Chardonnay with naptime, and peeing by herself on occasion. You can read more by her on her new blog www.InTheMomLight.com.

    Dear Judgey McKnows-It-All,

    Right now, your due date is approaching, and you’re hyper focusing on a lot of insignificant stuff. I wish you knew that none of what you are worrying about matters. What you need to do is go to bed now and sleep until the baby comes. It could be your last chance to sleep for a few uninterrupted hours for the rest of your life.

    What’s that you say? You’re not sleeping well because the pregnancy is making you so uncomfortable? Think again my friend. Soon you will be lying awake at 3 am in a pool of baby vomit, but you won’t want to move a muscle for fear of waking your precious little bundle of “sleeps when held.”

    While we are on the topic of useless (pun intended) that you are obsessing over, it seems as though you are sitting around wondering if you’ll poop on the table during delivery. Guess what? When the time actually comes, you won’t care if fecal matter ends up on the ceiling as long as they get that baby the hell out of you faster than a teenage boy gets off on the latest Victoria’s Secret catalog.

    Oh, and that book you’re reading on natural birth? Quit wasting your time with it and pick up a copy of What the Do I Do with this Baby? because once you’re actually in labor, you’ll tap out at three centimeters and beg for curbside epidural service as you pull into the hospital. Besides, the delivery is only one day, and the baby will be here for a l-i-f-e-t-i-m-e. Your time would be better spent learning something about child rearing rather than practicing breathing techniques that will do nothing for the pain, although, they might come in handy for your first bowel movement post childbirth.

    On another note, you seem to have a lot of opinions on parenting right now, but you will quickly realize that you have no idea what you’re doing which reminds me that I should warn you about the that Karma is. For all of the judgments you make now about other people’s parenting techniques, you will be sentenced to a lifetime of mom guilt laden thoughts. So, keep judging your friend who leaves her kids at daycare an extra hour so she can shop or cook by herself. In just a few short months, you will find yourself wishing daycare was open on weekends too. And the woman you saw at the grocery store in the frozen foods aisle whose nipples were pointing in different directions? Nice job criticizing her to your husband. Karma is about to replace your tots with 2 National Geographic style tube socks each holding a teeny, tiny ping-pong ball.

    So, have that extra slice of cheesecake now while you’re still delusional. You think you are all belly, but it’s going straight to your ass. And, by the way, you won’t be one of those lucky women who loses weight from breastfeeding. You will be the mom whose kid shows up everyday for preschool without his folder, mismatching clothes, and maybe even a little bit of food still on his face while you’re wearing a moo moo not fit for your grandmother. Memories of a daily shower will seem as magical as monkeys flying out of your ass and serving you mojitos on the white sands of Maui. Soon, going to the dentist will be the most relaxing thing you have time for. You will see.

    After the baby is born, between caring for him, your new found realization of what a dip your husband can be, and your post partum hormones, you will be so overwhelmed that you’ll start popping birth control like skittles just to make sure you don’t have a second child. Then, one night over a box of Franzia’s finest, you’ll find yourself just loopy enough to do it again.

    There is only one thing that will get you through the stretch marks, the puke stains, and the depression over your saggy post birth vagina – the love that, right now, you are unaware even exists.

    So hold onto your mom jeans and try not to wet your pants while you still have some level of bladder control – this ride is just beginning. Stop being a judgmental and start supporting other moms. You’re going to need them once you realize that you don’t have a ing clue what you’re doing…

    Love, Me
