“Kids: the Manual helped me to be a more mindful parent. I try to acknowledge my child’s feelings, and gently show him a more acceptable way. Using the timer during time-out has helped my child to calm down more quickly and stay in his chair for the duration without screaming or telling me I’m mean. He also loves to redeem his completed star chart for a prize at the toy store. He has learned to appreciate the things he has earned, and I hear less whining for new things.”
