  6. 6. I’m here to remind you that no matter what I look or act like on the outside - Why am I the host for this presentation?
  7. 7. I’m just a lizard, with some specific needs you may not see immediately. Just like your child… I’m here to remind you that no matter what I look or act like on the outside - Why am I the host for this presentation?
  8. 8. If your child bites…
  9. 9. screams…
  10. 10. hits…
  11. 11. or throws tantrums…
  12. 12. you’re probably asking:
  13. 13. How can I discipline my child? you’re probably asking:
  14. 14. I can give you some discipline advice
  15. 15. I can give you some discipline advice But it won’t last…
  16. 16. …until you find the root of the problem
  17. 17. I’m gonna give you a clue to what the real problem is…
  18. 18. mental nourishment! Children act out when their little minds don’t have enough
  19. 19. How can you your child’s mind?nourish
  20. 20. In short: 3. Give them activities that build on the skills of previous activities 2. Give them opportunity to do meaningful work with their hands 1. Help them do it by themselves
  21. 21. You probably haven’t slept in three years, so let me tell you what that means in English
  22. 22. 1. Help them do it by themselves
  23. 23. Little children want to be like us!
  24. 24. For 2-year-olds and 3-year-olds, this means being independent and doing things for themselves. Opening their own door…
  25. 25. Pouring their own drink
  26. 26. Choosing and putting on their own clothes… (at least most of the time)
  27. 27. If you’ve done something for them and they are throwing a tantrum because they want to do it by themselves…It’s okay to go back two steps and let them do it!
  28. 28. Children hate feeling like babies again! If you’ve done something for them and they are throwing a tantrum because they want to do it by themselves…It’s okay to go back two steps and let them do it!
  29. 29. 2. Give them opportunity to do meaningful work with their hands
  30. 30. Playing with dolls or cars is fine…
  31. 31. …but these are even better for developing the hand and intellect
  32. 32. using a hammer and nails… …but these are even better for developing the hand and intellect
  33. 33. cutting strawberries with a safe knife… …but these are even better for developing the hand and intellect
  34. 34. sewing with needle and thread… …but these are even better for developing the hand and intellect
  35. 35. Play kitchens are great…
  36. 36. but it doesn’t require the same kind of hand-eye coordination, care and attention as cooking on a real skillet
  37. 37. Your child will love to perfect his coordination and abilities. As long as everything is child-sized, those kinds of activities make children feel happy, independent and trusted.
  38. 38. 3. Give them activities that build on the skills of previous activities It’s also called “Instructional Scaffolding.” Don’t worry if you have no idea what that means! I’ll explain.
  39. 39. Skills, like pouring, should start easy, like pouring water while bathing
  40. 40. Then progress to pouring from a pitcher… (using a funnel takes it another step further)
  41. 41. before letting your child pour a bowl of eggs into a hot skillet That skillet is really on!
  42. 42. Here's another example: Peeling
  43. 43. First, teach your child to peel a banana…
  44. 44. before moving her onto tangerines…
  45. 45. Finally, eggs.
  46. 46. Have you noticed any patterns recently? Have you seen any tantruming children in any of these pictures? No!
  47. 47. Children who are concentrating on doing something with their hands and absorbed in that activity are too busy to throw tantrums! Have you noticed any patterns recently? Have you seen any tantruming children in any of these pictures? No!
  48. 48. So, let’s review. 1. Help them do it by themselves “Let it go! Let it go! Don’t hold them back anymore!”
  49. 49. So, let’s review. 2. Give them opportunity to do meaningful work with their hands They’ll surprise you if you give them the chance!
  50. 50. So, let’s review. 3. Give them activities that build on the skills of previous activities Easy —> Medium —> Hard
  51. 51. Again… 3. Give them activities that build on the skills of previous activities 2. Give them opportunity to do meaningful work with their hands 1. Help them do it by themselves
  52. 52. Now, if you want to know how to do all this at home, you should watch this great video…
