We used to have 5 tantrums a day with my 2 1/2 year old little girl. After switching from time-outs to the Love and Logic’s “Uh Oh Song” we maybe have one a day.
The best part is that now that I can redirect her behavior with just the words “Uh Oh.” It was really a life saver when we were at a wedding and she was starting to misbehave I just said “Uh Oh,” and she stopped and said “I promise, I promise, I will listen.”
My husband is wanting to learn more Love and Logic skills because he sees that this is working so well. I now feel like we can have more joyful days again!!
Thank you for all the amazing parenting tips! We hit a really rough patch for a while and I feel like we finally have the tools to take on the issues when they come up!
