The Naughty Step

October 16, 2010

For those of you with young children (with or without ADHD), you know that discipline can be a challenge. However, there are some techniques out there that can help.

One that worked for me when D was little was ‘The Naughty Step’. This technique has been seen by many on the popular parenting show ‘Supernanny’, where Nanny Jo Frost teaches it to parents struggling with children who have been lacking the necessary discipline.

There are also variations on the theme such as ‘The Naughty Stool’ and my personal favorite ‘The Naughty Mat’ – for those who like to discipline on the go. 😉

Watch the clip below to see Nanny Frost explain how this technique should be implemented.

You can find out more about Supernanny’s technique by clicking HERE.

Fear not, your little ones may test you to see how serious you are about this new approach. Just keep at it though and you’ll see results. Like any technique, the key to success is consistency.

Though it may be tough now, your children will thank you for it later. Ok, MUCH later. Maybe… 😛

    This is awesome. If only I could go back and do it right. Maybe there would have been less dreadful trips to the grocery store.
