The 6 "L's" of Positive Guidance

Hey guys! Just wanted to share with you the 6 L's of positive child guidance that I came up with for a Toastmasters speech.

Level- get down to the child's level.
Look- make eye contact.
Listen- find out what the child is feeling. Use your eyes and touch to listen as well as your ears.
Logical Consequences- let natural consequences rule- eg, you make the mess, you clean it up.
Lesson- recap with the child : "what did we learn from this?"
Love- hugs, kisses, let the child feel reconciled to you and other offended parties. When it's over, let it be over. Don't hold a grudge.

There ya go!

Love,
Melanie Raye.

Anime

In the past, my only experiences with anime were Pokemon, Digimon, and Sailor Moon. Other than that, I thought that anime was pretty weird. And while in some cases that may still be true ("Howl's Moving Castle", anyone?) I have learnt at Jacques' birthday party tonight that anime can actually be very funny. This reinforces the idea for me that it is important to be open to new things.

Hope you all have a great week!

Love,
Melanie Raye.
