Dear CARE Supporter,

Dear CARE Supporter,
Thank you so much for making our annual appeal a
big success! Your support helped us to raise over
$14,000. One program participant, Tracy, recently
said “My favorite experience has to be my last
session. I never thought I would feel so good about
myself again. The support of my therapist was
excellent. I couldn’t have gotten here without
her.” Your support helps us to serve individuals like
Tracy and to impact the lives of over 25,000
people throughout southeastern Michigan.
We have two big events coming up soon. Our first is
our 19th Annual Parenting Conference on Saturday,
March 8th at the Macomb Intermediate School
District. This year Dr. Terri Orbuch, the Love Doctor,
will be discussing “Strategies to Strengthen the
Relationship with Your Child”. We will also have 18
different speakers presenting on a variety of
topics. I hope you can be one of the 300 people that
attend this year’s conference! Our 2nd Annual Bike
PATH will be held on Sunday, June 1st at Lac St. Clair
Metro Park. We are hoping to have 400+ riders this

The word discipline comes from a Latin word that
means to instruct a person to follow a particular
code of conduct. When we punish children by yelling, spanking, or taking privileges away, we stop
misbehavior temporarily but we don’t teach them
what to do instead. They will repeat the same misbehavior which leads to frustration for us and them.
Consequences which are related to misbehavior
teach children the rules of society. Children will
tend to accept or at least understand these rules
which will lead to less power struggles and revenge.
When there are less power struggles, instruction can
take place.
Natural consequences occur without parental involvement. Examples include: if the child doesn’t
eat their dinner, he will be hungry before bedtime; if
a child goes out in the rain without a

However, some consequences are not safe for children to learn on their own. In those instances parents need to create logical consequences. Logical
consequences are created and help parents model
respect. Children who feel respected feel good
about themselves; and when they do, parents will
see respect reflected back to them. It’s important
to “separate the deed from the doer” by creating
consequences that are related to misbehavior instead of making children suffer to learn the rules.
We can do this by asking ourselves, “What do I want
my child to learn at this moment?” If you want your
child to learn to be responsible, you may choose not
to run his forgotten homework up to school as you
have in the past. You may let your child learn from
the logical consequence of receiving a lower grade
by turning in their homework late. If you want your
child to learn not to run in the street, the logical
consequences would allow them to play in a fenced
backyard until they can understand the importance
of staying safe near a busy street. Spanking a two
year old for running towards the street only teaches
the child that the world is not safe to explore. Finally, set limits but give choices within those limits. For
instance, “You can do your homework after school
or after dinner, you decide.”
Feeling empowered to make choices and
feeling respected helps to create an
atmosphere of cooperation.
