COMMON PARENTING QUESTIONS-  ENCOURAGE GOOD BEHAVIOR

Question:  My daughter has been testing my discipline lately.  How can I get her to behave better?

Answer:  It helps to view discipline as teaching your youngster to behave, rather than about punishing her when she doesn't. 

First, be sure she knows the reasons behind rules.  She'll be more likely to follow them if she understands what they're for. 

When she breaks a rule, make the consequences logical.  For instance, if she plays on your tablet without permission, she might lose screen time for the day.

Finally, let your child know you noticed when she follows a rule.  You could say something like, "You remembered to ask- that was responsible of you."

HAVE A GREAT DAY!
