Do you react to negative behavior from your child with a negative response?  A negative reaction with a lot of “don’t do that” and “don’t do this” just complicates and confuses.  Discover how to detach from the emotion and create an opportunity to really effect the behavior in a positive way.  Jay Morgan, Family Therapist and author of “Fingerpainting in Psych Class” joins Marianne Clyde, LMFT, author of Peaceful Parenting:10 Essential Principles for part 4 of their 4 part MommyZen Video Podcast.
