What Do You Know? I Actually Knew Something!

I ran across this article at CNN. It describes a few techniques to try with kids that could help you and may help them. I learned one rule differently.
You get what you get, and you don't throw a fit.
At our school it was "You get what you get, and you don't get upset." It's less accurate--you really shouldn't tell your kids how to feel, only what type of behavior is expected, but it rhymes.

What I found interesting is that there were a few of these rules that I was already using. I'm going to try one of the other ones soon!
