Gloomy Ruby Gloom weekend =(
I am serious I clear my calendar for my Nephews, that's the only time I am able to see them so I make sure we have enough quality time to compensate for the whole week that just passed and the new week to come. So I pretty much have a Free Agenda. Well its going to rain so lets just chill at home. And Pray that this is enough to get the message across.
As harsh as it may seem I agree that when you misbehave there is a Prize to pay, I pray that he understands and that this doesn't happen again. Its hard on children when they are not being raised in a two parent household. And the parents need to agree and help each other specially in the discipline area of raising children. I personally do not advocate or believe in physically discipline, that doesn't work, no matter how much people try to convince themselves that it does. It doesn't I have seen the effects that type of parenting leaves on adult children and I would never allow that to happen to any children on my watch. So the Psychologist in me prefers an alternative and we do Positive Reinforcers , I have showed my ex-sister in law how everything can be achieved with reinforcers, I have done so with my nephew since day one. But the problem is that he was used to me being the authority figure and what I say is Law. Now that he is living back with his mom, she needs to have that authority. So I have to do everything to help her achieve the goal. Even if it feels horrible, its for the best and I applaud her for not resorting to violence and instead is using reinforcers =D.
So as I sit here sans the nephews, mom and the Boy friend who works at night is catching up on some needed Zzz..Zzzzz. I will have to get creative. I have a lot of things I could write about and a lot of goodies that I have purchased that I could share my thoughts on, I only need to get this camera to work properly.
So I bid you farewell =) and I hope your weekends is brighter than mine. Such a Spoiled Cali Girl, I am complaining about the gloom =( I apologize for that. May the Lord Bless you all abundantly and keep you all safe and may he Help Japan and Libya !
