Three Strikes


Do you even feel like you’re playing ping-pong with your parenting techniques?  One tactic followed by another and then another.  In particular, we have a perpetual problem with bickering children…who doesn’t, right?  Our latest tactic may not stick, but it’s fun for the moment.  Whenever A hurts B or B insults A we make the offending child state out loud three things they positively LOVE about his/her sibling.  Sometimes in the moment it can be a stretch, but more typically it results in many giggles and a redirection of negative energy.
