How do you deal with discipline?


IT FRUSTRATES ME AT TIMES BECUZ I CAN’T B A “NORMAL” MOM. SO, I HAVE A PICTURE 2 SHOW U MY IDEA. IT’S SIMPLER THAN IT SOUNDS. ACTUALLY, MY SISTER MADE A SUGGESTION, & I “IMPROVED” IT! LOL BUT IT STARTED BECUZ MY KIDS DON’T WANT 2 SPELL OUT THEIR DISCIPLINE–WHAT KID WANTS 2 YELL AT THEMSELVES, & SLOWLY SPELL OUT THEIR PUNISHMENT? SO, I MADE THESE CARDS THAT I CAN FLASH AT THEM, SAYING THINGS LIKE “STOP HITTING!” OR “YOU’RE GROUNDED!” I NOWHAVE 2 KEYRINGS OF “STOCK PHRASES” 2 SAY 2 OTHERS WHO CAN’T SIGN, & A 2ND KEYRING 2 DISCIPLINE MY KIDS, SO THEY CAN’T PULL THE “I DON’T UNDERSTAND U” THING!

I ACTUALLY RARELY USE THEM NOW, BECUZ I AM TALKING MORE. STRANGERS WON’T UNDERSTAND ME, BUT MY KIDS DO. I HAVE 3 SPEAKING COMPUTER PROGRAMS THAT I CUSTOMIZED W/THESE PHRSAES, SO I PRACTICE “YELLING AT MY KIDS!” LOL

HERE’S MY INSTRUCTIONS, & THE PHRASES I USE (U CAN ADAPT/CHANGE THEM 2 THINGS U ALWAYS THINK):

PRINT & CUT OUT, ATTACH 2 HALF AN INDEX CARD, PUNCHED IN A CORNER, & ON A KEYRING. I KEEP IN MY WHEELCHAIR POCKET SO WHEN A KID CLAIMS THE “CAN’T UNDERSTAND U” GAME, OR SOME1 WHO CAN’T SIGN COMES BY & I WANT 2 TALK 2 THEM, I CAN JUST WHIP OUT THE CARD AND POINT TO A PHRASE OR A CATEGORY

2 ASSIST MY DOUBLE VISION, EVERY PHRASE IS IN A DIFFERENT COLOR, & SO I COULD LOCATE THINGS QUICKER 4 THE KIDS, I COLOR-CODED THE INDEX CARDS (LIKE IF I NEED A PUNISHMENT, I ONLY LOOK AT THE PINK INDEX CARDS–THIS IS SOOO HELPFUL!) I THEN HAVE THE CARDS IN ORDER (4 EX., I DON’T WANT 2 LOCATE THE CARD 2 STOP HITTING, SO IT IS ON TOP, & I CAN JUST WHIP IT OUT!)

MY COLOR-CODE INDEX CARDS 4 THE KIDS KEYRINGIS AS FOLLOWS:
1. FLOURESCENT YELLLOW–WARNING
2. FLOURESCENT PINK–PUNISHMENT
3. FLOURESCENT GREEN–COMMAND
4. PASTEL BLUE—INSTRUCTION, ENCOURAGEMENT

IN ORDER 2 DISCIPLINE THE KIDS W/O SIGNING, I MADE A KEYRING W/THE FOLLOWING PHRASES:

* NO BABY TALK

*STOP HURTING YOUR
BROTHER OR
SISTER.

* IF U CHOOSE TO IGNORE OR YELL AT ME, U’LL BE GROUNDED

* U ARE GROUNDED

* IF U CHOOSE TO IGNORE OR YELL AT ME, U WILL WEED.

* U NEED TO WEED

* TIME OUT

* DO IT NOW!

* DO IT, OR I’LL TELL DAD!

*STOP WHINING & JUST DO IT!

*GET OFF YOUR BUTT!

* HURRY UP!

*GET READY FOR BED

*PICK UP YOUR ROOM

*PICK UP YOUR TOYS

*SHARE

* YOU ARE DOING GREAT!

* QUIET PLEASE!

IN ORDER 2 HELP ME, “TALK” 2 MK WHILE HE’S ON THE PHONE, OR TALK 2 THOSE WHO CAN’T SIGN, I MADE THIS SECOND KEYRING:

* I NEED TO LEAVE

* I’LL BE BACK

* CAN U MOVE SO I CAN SEE?

* OPEN & HOLD OPEN DOOR

* PUT LEFT FOOT ON FOOTREST

*I NEED A WARM BLANKET

*SUNGLASSES ON

*PULL MY KNEES A LITTLE BIT

*BACK OF SHIRT DOWN

* GET MARK

*BUTT RIGHT

*BUTT LEFT

* I EMAILED YOU
