This simple kitchen timer is one of my go to tools for gentle discipline. It takes the power struggles out of ending activities. Instead of my saying, “It’s time to be done.” I say, “The timer has xx minutes left…” No more arguing with mom for power. This timer diffuses the focus onto an inanimate object. Plus, they love setting it themselves.
Do you have a go to gentle parenting tool? I’d love to hear from you.
