I recognized the #1 shaming discipline approach when I saw a grown woman do it to herself.
She played opposite me during a game of tennis, and every time she made a mistake, she shamed herself with a message I'm sure she heard all during childhood.
It's a shaming message that only takes one word.
I heard this message when I was growing up. You probably heard it while you were growing up, too. And it's time to stop shaming our children with it.
The #1 shaming discipline mistake applies to all Types of children.
The other 4 mistakes in today's show are customized to your child because they are Type-specific. Listen for your child in particular so you can eliminate the shaming situations your child experiences.
