When your kid hears you use words like don’t and stop, it will trigger an almost Pavlovian response so they tune out. Put requests in an encouraging tone. Instead of “don’t pull the dog’s tail,” try “pet Ginger gently.” And when you really need your kid’s attention. Whisper. Nothing is more riveting than a secret, even “time for bed” goes down better in a hushed voice. See our post on Choices. Leave us your comments. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
