So your child has a screaming tantrum at your local shopping centre; what do you do? Do you deal with it then and there or at home? What about the Super Nanny’s naughty corner; what do we really think of it? The truth is, there are lots of different techniques available for disciplining a child. The girls chat about using ‘time out’, having to leave places early, the naughty corner and more. It’s not all about the bad behaviour either. They look at ways of rewarding good behaviour and using positive reinforcement effectively.
When a baby says their first word and starts talking is one of those milestones that parents love to compare and boast about. It’s really good for all of us to know when it’s normal for kids to start and how to help them develop their language. Speech Pathologist, Gillian Fong, guides us through issues like when to stop the baby talk, talking a bit above the level of your child and ways to encourage your child to speak.
