Positive, creative thinking… your best tool as a parent!!

There is no way of escaping bad moods, anger, and the grouchies no matter how hard you try.   When my son was 2, he started pinching his older sister to express his anger.  Instead of returning his anger and scolding him, we would call him our “little pinching crab.”  For a second he would scowl, but then he would laugh.  Finding a way to transform negative behavior isn’t always so simple, but often it is.   When my kids start singing along with a pop song on the radio that has nothing to share but anger, we change the lyrics to reflect something of a more positive nature.  It always ends up being hilarious and gives us a sense of creative satisfaction.
