Saturday Links – The HALT Method & Weapon Play

Theory Links

Applying the HALT Method: A Checklist for Proactive Parenting – Gives a great concrete form to a strategy I always employ.  Remember to lower your standards for good behavior when any of these four apply, and things go so much more smoothly.

Weapon Play and Young Children – A great topic, one I mean to address in the future.  I’m on the side that says it’s important to let boys play fight and teach them responsibilty over it.

Activity Links

Squeezable Homemade Finger Paint – Always a good recipe to know, and much cheaper than from the store.

Homemade Water Table – I add this not so much for the table, but for the unique water play ideas.  Monkey does love him some water, and as soon as July comes, it’ll finally be hot enough to get wet all the time.
