I'm a parent of a six-year-old who has been acting out lately. Whenever she doesn't get her way or something doesn't go as planned, she tends to lash out and throw tantrums. I'm looking for some advice on how to discipline her in a way that promotes problem-solving and conflict resolution skills.
I want to avoid simply punishing her or using harsh words because I don't want to damage our relationship or make her feel hopeless. Instead, I want to find a way to calmly guide her towards better behavior and teach her how to communicate and problem-solve effectively.
Has anyone dealt with a similar situation? How did you approach it? Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
