Parenting Technique 35 – Use a reward as a positive part of your guidance system.
“After you clean up your toys, you can go out to play.”
“After you brush your teeth we can read a book before you go to sleep.”
This goes back to making a good choice.
Guiding your child in this way is fair, firm, and positive. It is proactive, not reactive, and includes the perspective of teaching.
As they say, “First things first!”
When life goes smoothly, it is very rewarding! You can’t beat that!
