Disciplining children from the Grammy point of view can be quite different than when we were the mommies. I’m afraid to say I parented with the “spare the rod, spoil the child” attitude. And there were quite a few “rods” in my house…the hairbrush, the fly swatter(LOL, my grandchild thinks a fly swatter is for swatting flies!) , a wooden spoon and my hand. I must not have beaten the children, as they’ve all grown up without scars, mental or physical. But…from the grammy point of view, I believe there are better ways to discipline our children. My isn’t it interesting how we mellow with age!!
Here’s an idea I found on Pinterest, that I think is wonderful for calming a wild child, and lots of fun to make together.
Mix 1 tablespoon of pink glitter-glue with about 1 cup of hot water, then added pink food colouring and a tiny tub of glitter.
The glue makes the water so thick and gooey that the glitter just slowly and gently swirls around, it takes about 5 minutes for all the glitter to settle, perfect to gather your thoughts!
Now that I think about it, I may just make an extra…Grammy needs a “Calming Jar” every once in awhile!
