Recently, I had the pleasure of connecting with a very esteem doctor and family expert, Dr. Elise Ho. I was able to share my heart of raising little bosses. I am so excited to share this piece with you.
Here’s an excerpt:
“I once read somewhere that your voice of discipline becomes your child’s inner voice. That really resonated with me. I mean, obviously in raising children, the way you interact with them stays with them and shapes them, but I guess reading it and seeing the words just clicked for me. When I correct my children, I call them “ma’am.” You may be asking, “why on earth would you address your children that way at that particular time?” Honestly, I want to show my children what respect looks like. In a clear stern voice, I give my directive or whatever correction, but I always say ma’am. I am teaching my girls that even if they are wrong, they still need to be addressed in a respectful manner.
