Moms are loving this positive parenting hair tie trick! All you need are 5 hair ties! 

The "hair tie trick" first appeared on the blog The Reformed Idealist Mom. She kept a visual reminder close and if she accidentally snapped at her kids, she'd move one hair tie over to  the other arm. The mom would then have to "earn it" back by doing five positive acts instead. The goal was to have all five on the original wrist by the end of the day.
