WORTH READING: Top 5 Strategies for Teaching Your Children to Behave

From Boystown:

Children are great learning machines, but they learn more through experience than they do from their parents talking. Below are five strategies for teaching your children how to behave.

  1. Teach children acceptable and unacceptable behavior immediately after the act.  Don’t wait.
  2. For important matters such as commands or instructions speak less; one or two words for every year the child has been alive is more effective than an elaborate rationale.
  3. Be very clear. “Would or could you,” is not as clear as “you have to.”
  4. Use positive motivation way more than punishment.
  5. Create a positive learning environment. Four to five pleasant interactions to one unpleasant direction.
