On Discipline: Phuong and Jeremy

The endearingly self-deprecating Phuong Lien Palafox and Jeremy Palafox kick off our parent-sourced series on discipline/behavior management/calf wrangling.  Press “play” below to listen to their wisdom about dropped watermelons, the efficacy of natural consequences, and the avoidance of shaming. And giggles. Lots of punch drunk giggles.

From the Palafoxes:
Phuong Lien Palafox is a mother of three energetic and verbose offspring.  When not cleaning up some form of bodily fluid or hoarding books for her children, she exists as a speech-language pathologist, partner to a kind lad, and connoisseur of breakfast tacos.
Jeremy Palafox is taller (and surely more tired) than his three children.  He partakes in media shenanigans by day, exists in getting-children-to-slumber purgatory when the sun is setting, and revels in creating and arranging holiday decor between 2-4 am.

    Thank you again wonderful Katie for letting us be a part of this series on discipline! After listening again to our words, 1.) we were really tired and 2.) discipline can be a hard thing to discuss because there’s not a one size fits all method. Every parent should find the approach to discipline that works best for them and their children. After listening to the post today, a coworker came over to my desk to talk about how challenging it is to utilize natural consequences in every situation…like when her son won’t stop picking his nose. What is the natural consequence to consuming ooegy-gooey mucus balls? Discipline, like most every other aspect of parenting, can be a fluid concept.
