Do your children and teens listen to the external rules guiding them to do what is expected of them in the home, at school, and out in the community? Most of the time? That’s a big part of discipline, our Powerful Word of the Month. But there is also another part– making sure that they are listening to their own internal rules, which we, at our Powerful Words Member Schools call “I- Rules.” I-Rules tell us what to do when nobody is there to remind us of “the rules” but it also reminds us of our own rules– the rules that are in line with our character– that tell us to keep going when we’re frustrated, be truthful even when we want to lie, and be respectful even when we’re grumpy.
Discipline is an extremely powerful word! I love this word! So it’s exciting that our amazing Powerful Words Member Schools are teaching it this month…and every month
