When Less is More!

ID-10063267Repeating everything to your children over and over again is like a vaccine that immunizes your children’s ears against your words!

In order to really get your children to listen, try talking less and giving your child doable choices. Make what you say count and be consistent with the consequences. Say, for example, “Johnny, time to get ready for bed,” while pointing to the clock. Then help them feel in control by giving them a choice, such as, “Johnny, do you want to brush your teeth or put on your pj’s first?” Having a win-win simple choice engages your child and gets the desired task accomplished.
