In today’s episode of Raising Adults, Deana and Kira break down the three types of consequences, how to use them, and when to use them. If you find yourself asking what’s an appropriate consequence, this episode is for you. “The design isn’t to be punitive. The design is to help the world make sense because we are our children’s teachers for how to navigate the world later on.” – Deana Thayer Today’s discussion includes:
- The importance of follow-through and meaning what you say (6:36)
- Empty threats lose power over time (7:36)
- First type: A Natural Consequence (9:52)
- Second type: A Logical Consequence (14:38)
- Third type: A Currency Consequence (19:24)
- Why experiencing these consequences in childhood help prepare kids for adulthood (26:04)
