Day late

Post on children–I was making a pie early this morning when I realized that in the hustle and bustle of yesterday I missed posting–sorry. With the winter holidays (Christmas for me) approaching, I think it is important to remember presentation. We think about it a lot this time of year for the things we bake and wrap but do we always recall the Mary Poppins lesson of a “spoonful of sugar to make the medicine go down?” How do you present “rules” to your children? As negatives that when broken result in punishment? As guidelines that will help them more rapidly reach their goals when followed? Which would you rather have?
