Simple Techniques That Can Help You Manage Your Childs Behavior
One of the simplest and most effective ways of stopping misbehavior is by ignoring it. However the chances are that you are well past that stage if you are reading this online in search of ways to make them behave.
If you're currently having trouble getting your childs behavior under control then please read on.
Eliminating The Bad
A number of toddler behavior problems can be effectively eradicated with a simple time-out. This entails telling your child that their bad behavior will result in them being put in some place, a particularly boring place like on a chair in the corner of a room, or on the naughty step, and then make them stay there for a set amount of time.
As soon as any bad behavior starts to emerge, first give them a warning. Then if the display continues follow through with your threat of a time out.
A few minutes should be enough and and make sure you can keep your eye on them for that time. Make sure you don't communicate or even look at them though. If they continue hollering and misbehaving, or if they wander away from the naughty area simply put them back and start the time-out over again.
Your child will soon learn the pattern here. They will know that their bad behavior ends up in a timeout so they will learn to avoid it. This is as long as you show no cracks in your armor and make sure you always enforce it.
Now For The Good Behavior
Getting rid of the bad behavior is one thing, but if you want to actually improve your childs behavior then consider using some sort of reward system when they are good. It can be really quite simple and negative results can often be put down to parents inadvertently rewarding bad behavior by giving in to them just to shut them up.
There is obviously a lot more to learn when it comes to managing your childs behavior, but these tips might be enough to get you thinking about what to do.
