Here's a short video to talk about why using threats to get cooperation is a no-win game for everyone and oftentimes backfires.

As a quick reminder: no one is perfect, and you're not going to discipline from a No-Drama or Whole-Brain perspective every time you get a chance. Neither do we. But you can decide that you'll take steps in that direction. And with every step you take, you'll give your kids the gift of a parent who is increasingly committed to their lifelong success and happiness, making them happy, healthy, and fully themselves.
