The One-Body Principle :: Suppose your right leg began twitching for no apparent reason…you’d do something about it…But you wouldn’t yell at your leg or threaten to hurt it! Nor would you ignore it and think, “It’s the leg’s problem, not mine.” Such responses wouldn’t make sense because your leg is a part of YOU. Likewise, when your child’s behavior seems unreasonable, you can overcome the temptation to react negatively by responding to your child as if s/he were a part of your body.
