When you have a Responsive Discipline Toolbox, you can decide which tools to use in a challenge. There is no “template” to follow, other than making an informed decision.

The tools you select and the way you use them are a part of your personal style. Two parents can use a different set of tools in their response to the same circumstance. Both responses can be effective. You will be comfortable using some tools, uncomfortable with others.

The way you raise your children is uniquely you

Responsive Discipline respects this perspective.
