There are many schools of thought on discipline and child rearing. We are fans of gentle parenting not yelling at or spanking children. One simple thing you can do when your child is having a meltdown is count to 10 with them.

We were impressed by Marcella Cook’s Olympic Rings craft because it looked like a great activity to involve the kids and share some Olympic flair.

Sometimes as parents we can get to the end of our rope and be tempted to follow “might is right” parenting which ends in spanking and yelling at our children. Studies have shown that spanking, even “mild” spanking, can cause long-term mental health issues for children.
Some advocate time outs to set boundaries, but there is another school of parenting called gentle parenting. Gentle parenting takes time, patience, communication, self-knowledge, a willingness to go on the parenting journey, did we mention patience? 🙂 The result is a loving, respectful relationship where even your discipline teaches your child about love, respect, trust and understanding.
We were impressed by Donna Partain’s Olympic Torch craft because it looked so “real” and it was easy to make. Thank you Donna for clear pictures so we could recreate this craft with our kids! This is a fun craft to make and you can use it when you put on your own backyard Olympics.
Congrats to Donna who will be receiving an Olympic themed package of shirts, mugs and more!
