I have tried this method on my 6 year old. Breathe in, step back, frown a little but not utter a word. He soon got bored with his inappropriate behaviour and told me that he had a bad day at school and that he wasn't really happy.I felt victorious and in control and above all calm, very calm.Thank you for the tip. I have indeed bought the book AND have recommended to other mothers!

In theory this sounds great, but what if the behaviors are consistently against another child like pushing, hitting, hair pulling, grabbing toys away etc.? How does one help a misbehaving child in the most positive way? Also with silence, what happens when the child looks to make sure you have seen the incorrect behavior as if they are waiting for a response? Thanks in advance...
