Believing Your Child “Should” Behave a Certain Way.

Techniques that should be used are Listening for Feelings and Praise Good Behavior, so that the teen doesn’t feel attacked by parents. I would use “I’ Statements and Reflective Listening when talking to them and finally we would Solve Problems Together and Follow Through With Decisions.

Bobby, the oldest son, has kept his room clean for two weeks without being told to pick up. You make a point of pointing this specific behavior out at the regularly scheduled family meeting and offer to order his favorite pizza for dinner. Technique used is to Praise Good Behavior by rewarding him. I would have done the same in the situation.

After watching a movie about drug and alcohol abuse, you and your spouse express your concerns regarding this problem to your 16-year-old son. Techniques uses is to Talk About Values.

You have asked your daughter to unload the dishwasher and take out the trash before you get home from work as guests are coming for dinner. She does not do this and is sassy with you regarding being asked to do this chore. You are angry, but tell her you will discuss and discipline her once your guests have left. Technique used is to Wait Until You Are Calm to Deal With The Situation. I would have waited as well, after guests are gone I would use “I” Statements and Reflective Listening to solve the issue.

What are five(4) routines you can follow to create a “happier morning” with children?

Planning is Key – Plan everything the night before so that children aren’t rushing the morning of to get things in order.

Mr. Grumpy- getting the child an alarm clock so that they wake themselves up gives them a sense of autonomy which helps improve and start their day in a positive attitude.

Getting Those Z’s- Making a nightly routine fun so that the child can go to bed earlier and on time, this way they won’t be falling asleep in class and wake up fully rested.

The Importance of Breakfast- Getting your child to eat breakfast will improve their overall day. They will improve their school performance, attendance, behavior and energy.
