You have friends over dinner and serve ice cream for dessert. Once your toddler has finished her ice cream, she starts reaching for your friend’s unfinished dessert and cries. Your friend says, “That’s fine. I was almost finished.” What do you do?
It’s those darned video games! Take them away until the grades go up.
Incentivize them and tell them that if they get straight As, you will buy them a new toy.
It’s probably your fault. Find out if there’s something going on at home that’s causing your child to act up at school.
Work together with your child to create a plan to improve study habits and strictly enforce the rules.
Just move on. Grades aren't important any ways.
You are doing your shopping and pass by the sugar cereal. Your child asks if you can get some, but your family has decided to eat more healthy food so you say, "No." Your child starts stomping and screaming. What do you do?
Say, "I know this is disappointing. It would be amazing to stay here and play all day but it's time to make dinner. Would you like to walk to the car on your own two feet or would you like me to carry you?"
Tell your child “If you don't listen right now, you're not getting dessert!"
You feel bad - She's having so much fun with her friends. Say, "Fine, 5 more minutes!"
Walk away in frustration + make a mental note to never come back to the park with them again.
It's Saturday morning and you'd like the kids to help out with cleaning before you let them have some screen time. When you let them know it's time to clean up their toys, they start to whine and promise to clean after screen time. What do you do?
