Are you tired of telling your child to do this and do that and having him or her not do it? Now there is a new way to get a better response!
Parenting Technique 11 – Make your child feel needed.
Seek your child’s help. Here are some examples of successful ways to implement this technique:
- “Bryan, I need your help with all these shells. Whenever you pick them up, you always find every last one.”
- “Catherine, I need your help setting the table. Whenever you put out the silverware and the napkins, I always know where to put the glasses.”
- “Devon, I need your help changing Ethan’s diaper. Whenever you talk to him, he always stays still.”
