A mother of young twins admits she sometimes has trouble getting her children to listen to her.
However, she did reveal the trick she uses to get them to do as she pleases all the time without being too fussy.
Marcella Collier, a certified positive discipline parent educator and owner of High Impact Club, shared her method of getting kids to obey on her popular TikTok page.
inside videotapes, Marcella has repeatedly shown herself warning her kids that playtime at the park is coming to an end.
When it was time to leave, her children refused and one replied sternly, “No.”
Instead of getting angry and yelling at her children, she quickly devised an alternative to bring them home.
“I have an idea,” she said.
“Pick a few more acorns, put them in your bag, and we’ll show them to you.”
She calls her solution a “transitional act,” which keeps her from arguing back and forth and vying for power with her children.
“The reminders did not work.
“The transition has taken place,” explains Marcella.
She added: “It’s not that one is better than the other, [you] you just have to have more than one positive discipline tool. ”
Marcella is one of many parents who are trying to raise their kids without punishing them in traditional ways, aka gentle parenting.
For example, a mother claims that she doesn’t give her children time out when they misbehave.
Instead, she offers them a consequence that reverses their actions or teaches them about what they did wrong and why they should never do it again.
In addition, another parent shared that she is teaching her children about consent and letting them decide if they want to receive a hug from an adult, not forcing them to accept.
