When I came across this post from Marnie Craycroft at Carrots Are Orange, I knew we had to include it in the Family Room. What parent hasn’t wondered how to response when their child starts talking about boogers and poo at the dinner table? Or struggled to find the right words when their kiddo gives up too quickly? And what about tattling? Marnie has wonderful, simple responses for all of these situations and a couple more. You can bet I’ve started using some of these gems with my own kids. Read on! ~Ellie
Marnie writes: “I am not the perfect parent. I try really hard though. I read a lot. I heed advice from many friends and family members. So, here are five effective responses (honed down from many, many more) that I’ve tested with my sons.”
