Today at the LLL of Murray meeting Timbra talked about ways to put gentle discipline in action in our lives from gently helping a breastfeeding baby not to bite, to keeping toddlers out of mischief. When we give our babies and children respect as fellow members of the family and take their personality and needs into consideration we are giving them more than just discipline that will keep them from harm, but valuable tools that will help them deal with others throughout their lifetime.
