-Ralphie Jacobs’ 3 Takeaways for Helping your Kids Behave Well-

 

  1. Use positive reinforcement to strengthen desirable behaviors. In other words, water the flowers, not the weeds! Instead of focusing your energy on the negative behaviors, focus on creating positive associations with behaving well. 
  2. Try redirection to teach children what they can do to get their needs met (instead of focusing on what you don’t want them to do). As you do this, you give them tools and skills for the future as well.
  3. Create positive behavioral momentum within your home through playfulness and connection. If we can get the momentum going in a positive direction with our kids, they will most likely continue going that way.
