Encouraging vs. Discouraging statements
Your words as well as your tone can discourage your child.
One of the first things you can do to encourage your child is to make a shift in what you say and your tone of voice.
Child is throwing a ball in the house
Parent “Stop that! You could break something!” Don’t you remember the rule?”
A Better Way If you want to throw the ball, you can do that outside.
Parent is annoyed and distracted as his four-year-old twins fight in the backseat of the car.
“Stop that please!”
A Better Way Parent pulls the car over w/o saying anything. When the boys quiet down, he continues driving. He repeats this a few times until the boys stop their disruptive behavior.
