Bob On My Mind

I know I have watched Bob the Builder one too many times when these thoughts cross my mind:
  • Perhaps Bob could be on Dancing with the Stars. He does a mean Salsa.
  • What is Mrs. Percival really saying when she asks Bob to meet her at her house for dance lessons? Is she disappointed when he doesn't show?
  • How does Wendy feel when Bob says, "Wendy, I don't know what I would do without you." Her look seems to say, "Bob, I love you. You are the man of my dreams."
  • It is truly sad that Bob does not get to see his identical twin brother, Tom, very often.
  • Wendy could really compete on Skating with the Stars. She's been an Olympic Skier and a marathon runner. She's truly an athlete.
Like I said one too many times...

Oh and I found a site that actually discusses the possible relationship between Bob and I am not that far off base.

A few weeks ago I attended a workshop presented by a behavior therapist. As it turned out, I went to a conference on the same topic over a year ago. I will describe what I have taken away from these methods in my own words - but please take a look at the links I have provided below. After I learned about this, life with children made a lot more sense to me. Not that this is earth shattering material, but it helped me to better understand the hows, whats and whys of behavior in children, and occasionally husbands. I am in no way an expert in this - just a parent who wants to share a behavior strategy that has worked in our home. I hope to inspire others to explore it further.  Any errors in information comes from me and cannot be blamed on the presenters. Also, you may have seen ABA - Applied Behavior Analysis - connected most often with Autism - please do not let this deter you if your child is not autistic. I use these methods with all my children, none of which are labeled au
