Choose a few rules that matter most. Children are more likely to know what’s expected when we tell them the rules simply and clearly, like “hold hands with a grownup when you’re crossing the street,” “no hitting,” “no name-calling,” and “ask before you take something.”
Let your child know that children don’t have to like the rules, but they still have to follow them. When children know you care about their feelings, they are usually better able to manage within rules.
Be sure to give praise when children follow rules. That’s a caring way for your child to hear how important the rule is to you. By praising your child, you’re strengthening the foundation for self-discipline.
