How to Discipline Without Damage: Empowering Your Child’s Spirit, teaches one what it truly means to discipline.

How to Discipline Without Damage
The difference between discipline and punishment is the takeaway. One being disciplined learns not to repeat the action. One being punished learns not to be caught doing the action.

You can manage a problem or prevent it from occurring all together. Would you rather empty a bucket from underneath a dripping faucet or fix the leak? Choosing modes of correction is the prior, whereas disciplining is the latter.

Screaming and spanking are not teachers, but rather modes of correction (ineffective ones, at that). They don’t teach children to stop a behavior, just to get better at hiding it.

Disciplining through peaceful methods models dignity, respect and kindness. These values will, in turn, be instilled in and modeled by your children. The key aspect of discipline is to teach, not punish. Through natural and logical consequences rather than punishment, your child will learn desirable behavior.

In this book you will learn:
• The Mistakes You May Be Making in Modeling Behavior
• The Difference Between Outward and Inward Responsibility
• How to Help Children Be Problem Solvers
• How to Repair or Rebuild a Broken Boundary or Relationship
• And Much More

Reframing Past Emotional Hurts (EXPERT)

We have all had emotional wounding in our lives.  Usually the negative beliefs about our capabilities, appearance or skills were given to us by someone in our early life experience.  The hurt or criticism was typically handed

out by a caregiver, parent or teacher. They may even have had the best of intentions and really loved us, but did not know how to express that love in a positive manner.

Reframe Past Hurts

Reframing is a process of consciously choosing the thoughts you have about your memories and experiences.  You cannot make past events go away.  What happened to you is real and is a part of who you are.

However, you have the power to control your future and the ability to have another look at what happened. In the worst of experiences, there was some good.  You can choose to reflect on the life lesson learned in the experience and focus on that rather than the sad or traumatic emotional wounding that occurred.

It is as if you have been given a family portrait from your grandmother’s estate.  You value the picture, but the frame does not go with your style of decorating.  You simply re-frame the photo by putting a new frame around the old picture.  It now fits who and what you are today.

Virginia Dunstone M.S. in her book Why Do I Do What I do? suggests we ask ourselves these questions about past hurts;

  • Can I change what happened?
  • What is right about this picture?
  • What does the situation teach me?
  • Who would I be without this experience?
  • Who are the teachers in this memory?
  • What did they teach me?
  • How can I serve others with what I have experienced?

Past Hurts Can HealWhen we understand that what may have occurred in a vulnerable time in our belief forming years may no longer be relevant, if it ever was, it is easier to let the emotional wounding go. They may shape the adult we became.

Empowerment can come from overcoming emotional wounding and recognizing that we no longer need to carry that burden  of hurt from the past. We can choose to see these wounds through the lens of a victim or change the perception by choosing to look at them through a new and better frame.

Understanding Publishing Paths

Publishing has never been more accessible to authors than it is today. Many writers decide to self-publish themselves on Amazon, others choose to partner with a literary agency, and still others continue to go the route of traditional publishing. But because there are so many publishing options, it’s easy to get lost in questions like: “Where do I upload my manuscript? How do I know the formatting is right? How does distribution work? Where can I get a decent cover? What’s the difference between DIY publishing and assisted publishing? How and where do I distribute online and around the country?”

We found this infographic from Aerogramme Writers’ Studio and want to pass it on so that you can clear up questions you have about today’s crazy, complex, publishing industry.

In this infographic, Artichoke Press falls under the “fully assisted” category. We will help you publish your finished book and work with you on design and editing for one solid price, and we will work with our writers until they are completely satisfied with their end product.
