Today’s Parenting Reminder:
Not enough consequences is a danger to children growing up as healthy, happy adults.
Has something been bugging you about your child’s behavior?
Make a “rules” chart with your child about that topic. If the child is very young, use pictures. Include what happens if the rule is not followed.
For an older child give him a chance to help determine the rules and what will happen if each rule is not followed.
For more understanding about consequences take a look at Kids and Sharing, Kids and Sharing, Part 2, or Sticking to the Rules.
Next Parenting Reminder will be on October 28, 2015 (Daily Parenting Tips).
