Thanks everyone :)

Reading everyone's responses has helped me be more
aware of the very distinct difference between a
consequence and a punishment. It was easy for me to
fall into the fake natural consequence crap, not so
easy to do anymore *BWG*
The cushions suggestion is a really good one.
Definitely something I can do, as well as the reminder
to be a calm presence as opposed to an anxious one.
(Thank you Deb and Su)

"Maybe you could tell them next time that you're being
because you want to have kids who will love you for
life and do things
for your
grandchildren and be generous with you and others,
rather than kids who
learn to
leave home at 18 and hardly look back. "

LOVE that :) SO fantastic :)

Thanks again everyone :)
