Teach your child from the consequences, and not from the threat of consequences. Even if you are too tired to take your kid to the car for breaking the rule, you have to take him or her. You must honor your word. If you skip, then your rules will have no effect.
Do Not Nag, Preach, Remind, And Correct Constantly
Avoid paying attention to your kid’s unwanted behavior, or else you will encourage it to grow. When your kid starts showing minor behavior, turn your attention elsewhere, and try to ignore. If tantrums unfold at the table, simply give minimal attention to it and take him or her to the car. Correcting or lecturing will not help.
Notice Your Kids When They Are Behaving Properly
Acknowledge your kids with a smile, a nod, or a touch when they are quiet and under control at the table. This encourages the development of healthy behavior, at home and outside.Remember, kids learn by experiencing the consequences, not just by hearing the threat.That’s the bottom line version: Kids learn from consequences, and you will need to plan that YOU WILL TAKE ACTION. This means a calm, plan-fully executed, and delivered with agenda to preach, demand or force the learning. It will happen, but not because of what you say…but because of what you do!Best of luck!
