PAX Tools Low Emotion Response

Do you get tired of hearing yourself say "no" to your kids? It can be discouraging for the adult and the child.

While verbal communication is important, we can use nonverbal cues to respond to some behaviors. When we do this, we can provide low emotional feedback that allows the child to recognize their behavior without drawing unnecessary attention to it.

Try using a thumbs up or thumbs down to signal when behavior is desirable or undesirable. A simple thumbs up says "great! keep it up!" while a thumbs down says "please fix your behavior"
