Correction Through Connection. As it turns out, there is no other way.

Children are no different from anyone else, when we humiliate and shame them, they tend to shut down. This comes from the idea that we all have a fight or flight trigger inside of us that shuts down when someone is yelling at us. When this happens we tend to shut down, and our brains can’t function at their best under those circumstances. It doesn’t matter how much you love your children, it sill happens. Discipline comes from teaching, not from punishing.

Key Takeaways:

  • Yelling and belittling is probably not an effective solution to their corrections, they respect you less this way.
  • When we are in fight or flight mode, the brain shuts down, when we are being yelled at, it has the same effect.
  • If you want your children to open up to your influence, you will have to make sure that you use your connection to correct them, no matter how close you are.

“We might yell, say things we regret, or say reasonable things in ways we regret. We’re human. It’s going to happen.”
