Steve Patterson co-hosts with me as we talk to Alfie Kohn, the best-selling author of many books on parenting and education.  We spend a large portion of the show discussing how using punishments and rewards, carrots and sticks, teaches children that they are only loved under certain conditions, they are only valuable when they do good.   There are many ramifications of this approach, none of which are desirable.  We also discuss some of the flaws of the public education system, how it crushes the natural desire of children to learn.

Yep another talirumvtlne here! My daughter was the worst when she was around 2 y/o. She'd do the whole kick, hit, scream routine but also she'd throw things across rooms, even kid size chairs. Anything she could pick up she'd throw. We've got little dint/holes in our walls thanks to her tantrums.We make her sit in the naughter chair/corner and ignore her, she hates to be ignored as she is an attention seeker, so this really works for her. We tried the reasoning/cuddles/holding down, it just did not work.Our almost 3y/o only really chucks tantrums when he's tired, so the result is bed time, and 9 times out of 10 he's more then happy to go lol If he's chucking a tantrum when he's not tired, we tend to calm him down and distract him.Our one y/o constantly bangs his head when he's chucking a tantrum, if he's tired he goes to bed, but most of the time we distract him.You're right, every child is different, every tantrum is different. It's all trial and error Tubbah recently posted.. [url=]meedagqzrm[/url] [link=]efoejyalcoq[/link]

I have noticed that eepnesxs for online degree authorities tend to be an incredible value. For instance a full Bachelors Degree in Communication in the University of Phoenix Online consists of 60 credits from $515/credit or $30,900. Also American Intercontinental University Online gives a Bachelors of Business Administration with a overall school feature of 180 units and a price of $30,560. Online learning has made getting the college diploma so much easier because you may earn your current degree in the comfort of your home and when you finish from office. Thanks for all the other tips I have learned through your site.
