fr_10202_7XVIII. NATURAL CONSEQUENCES
Toddlers fall a lot. It's part of learning to walk. (Usually it's just a sudden sit-down.) They don't blame anybody, they just get up and try again. Falling is a Natural Consequence of not doing it right, and they know that, so they keep on practicing until they get it right. When a child recognizes that something is a Natural Consequence of his own behavior, he is likely to correct his behavior without a lot of emotion.
