why you must get there on time. Simple instructions like, “Get your bag,” will do the trick.
Give Them Choices
Children yearn for the opportunity to exert some degree of influence on their environment. The choice between two alternatives may provide people with a sense of agency.
Rather than allowing a youngster who has trouble getting dressed in the morning to browse through their drawers, you may try picking out two shirts and ask them to choose one.
Go Ahead, Say It
Young minds are endlessly curious. They could poke holes in your arguments and relish a healthy discussion. Maybe you just don’t have the time right now. Sometimes, the phrase, “Because I’m your parent and I said so,” will have to suffice.
Kids Can Be A Challenge
Using this strategy is particularly effective with toddlers and preschoolers since they naturally prefer going against their parent’s desires. Anyway, keep in mind that this method should only be used if absolutely required while dealing with kids.
While children’s misbehavior often stems from natural curiosity and the want to explore their environment, it’s important to remember that this is their way of learning and growing. Improving their listening and comprehension abilities is a byproduct of your efforts to reach them.
