Kids, not unlike grown-ups like to feel in control. So capitalize on this desire. Instead of asking a question like, “Can you pick up your toys please?” When in reality there is only one acceptable answer, propose some options even if they are not exactly monumental. Give your child a choice, such as “Please pick up two of your toys or that box next to your bed,” which defuses the “no” bomb before it has a chance to ignite. See our post on cause and effect. Leave us your comments. Your feedback is greatly appreciated. Let us know what other topics you would like to have discussed. Share this post with your family and friends. Remember to always praise your child.
