Great article. Nice and short, too. I love how you get the modeling in there, so subtly and without judgement. You remind us that the kids are watching, and that they’re the world’s greatest imitators.
You might like the work of Dr. Ross W. Greene for additional research on this topic, too. Check out www.livesinthebalance.org for more info. Your point about meltdowns being a limitation of development corresponds well with Dr. Greene’s work.
