Counselor’s Corner with Mrs. O


Tips for Positive Discipline

While parenting is a joy, it can also be exhausting. This is the first segment in a two-part series on parenting tips to assist you. Here are a few to help you parent in a positive way:

  1. Show respect by focusing on the behavior, not the child.

  2. Be firm, fair, and consistent. Consistency is key!

  3. Physical punishment teaches children that violence is ok.

  4. Act quickly so your child associates misbehavior with consequences.

  5. Fit the consequence to the behavior. For example, if your child draws on the wall, the consequence can be to clean the wall. 

  6. Cool down before you discipline- deep breaths. Remember, you are the role model.

  7. Catch them doing the right thing & give specific praise about the behavior you like.

Part 2 will come next month! I am here to help. I can be by calling 919-856-7723, through talking points or via e-mail:

Make it a great day!

Dreambox Usage


Students are expected to complete at least 5 lessons a week in Dreambox. A Harvard University study has shown that just 60 minutes of DreamBox lessons per week can fast-track your students up to two grade levels in a year. We recommend that students complete five or more lessons per week with DreamBox Learning because students who complete five lessons each week show more math growth than those who complete fewer lessons. One lesson takes about 15 minutes. Dreambox is adaptive and constantly responding to the skills and understanding of your child. Having your child complete at least one Dreambox lesson a week can help your child’s teacher better understand their need, extend their learning, and/or address learning gaps.
