It is important that as a parent you too have to enter the disciplinary arms race where there are no winners – only soaring blood pressure along with sore throat and hurt feelings. But when it comes to parenting it does not have to be a battle. Adhering to positive parenting tips can help you teach your child discipline without any sort of threats, yelling, bribes etc.
Positive Parenting Tips To Teach Your Kid The Best Behaviour
When it comes to positive parenting tips it will actually help you set a path for your children in order to make them behave in a better manner along with building a stronger and a more peaceful connection with your child.
1. Try to figure out reasons behind the behaviour of your children:
There can be several reasons why your child must have been pouty all day long or has not paid any heed to what you have said. Talking to them about what might have happened could be helpful in understanding what actually went wrong.
2. Focus on controlling yourself:
Many times it happens that parents tend to lose their cool when children do something wrong. Getting angry and yelling or beating up your child is never the answer, because the more anger and frustrated you become, the naughtier their behaviour will become.
3. Being consistent with your expectations:
If your child does something unacceptable it is important that you make them understand that their behaviour should be changed instead of just ignoring it in the hope that it will pass away someday.
4. Give attention to favourable behaviour:
Many times children tend to act a certain way because they want the attention of the parents. But actually concentrating on the behaviour which is favourable and ignoring the unfavourable actions by actually letting them know that you do not want to see more of that behaviour is the way to go!
Most of the times when we tend to ask our children to stop behaving a certain way by asking them “don’t” or “no”, they do not listen. So one of the things that are always helpful in these cases is actually redirecting their misbehaviour with something positive. For example if the child is misbehaving in a grocery market you could ask them to do a certain “grocery challenge” where they pick out their favourite vegetables. Distracting them from their misbehaviour is the key.
Therefore these positive parenting tips are helpful in teaching your kids favourable behaviour.
