3 Questions

By Wayne Russell

A former colleague, Mum Cassandra, asks herself the following three questions when any of her two children are acting up or being fussy:

  1. Are they sleepy?
  2. Are they hungry?
  3. Are they off schedule?

Cassandra says, "If the answer is 'yes' to any of these questions then it's something I have to fix.".

Asking these three questions helps with delaying the consequence or deciding whether a consequence is even needed.  Read more about delayed consequences here.

Make it a great day or not, the choice is yours!
