CHANGE YOUR WORDS, and GET THE BEHAVIOR YOU WANT

22 Jun

Say “do” instead of “don’t.” “Do” sentences (or those in the positive form) give your child a better idea of what behavior you expect.

Example: “Don’t run” gives child no alternative, but “We walk in the house, running is for outside” will let your child know what to do instead.

“Don’t jump on the bed” becomes “Off the bed.” Tell them what you really want in the positive.

Try it for a week with the whole family. It works!

DON’T SAY “DON’T” SAY “(DO)…..”!
