Some teens are stubborn to stand their own ground. As far as I am concerned, I don’t want to blame her with this, on the contrary, I appreciate it. However, sometimes, this would make me a little bit frustrated. I have got some great discipline tips to share with you today, and many of them work. Speaking of disciplining your kid, the key is to be consistent, show respect and remain calm. Remember that you are a role model of your child, and he is watching you and learning from your reactions all the time. Here are some tips follow.
Teach Natural Consequences
It’s much more meaningful for your kid to know about the consequences if he makes a bad choice. Moreover, as it’s safe, you could let him see what would happen. Compared with teaching them the natural consequences, punishing them has nothing to do with their improper behaviors.
Ignore Their Certain Behaviors
There are lots of kids would do many things to attract their parents, and I consider those behaviors as attention seeking behaviors. I know it’s a little bit hard for you to ignore them. In this situation, it’s no use to give them baby soft toys. But if it’s not a serious situation, you should just ignore it. They would probably stop doing it, if they can’t get response from you.
When they are able to make a choice, they would love to be in charge. They are more likely to cooperate, if they feel that they are involved in making decisions. For that reason, you should give them some options to let them make a choice. Just make sure those options you give are options that you need to do anyway. As giving options to your kid, you could ask him ‘what would you wanna do first, to get the baby boy clothes on or put your shoes on?’
