Ways To Help Your Child Behave In A Positive Way

Give Praise -

Praise builds self-esteem and encourages your child to try hard.  Keep your praises specific to the situation and tell them what it is that you are praising them for.  ie. Praise your child if you see them pick up something that someone dropped, or if they cleaned their room without asking. 

Set Expectations -

When setting expectations for your child, make sure they are clear and easy to understand.  Listen to their input when discussing the expectations you are setting.  Don't let them set their own boundaries, but be open to what they have to say and why.Make sure they know htat if they don't follow through on the expectations that ou both have discussed, there will be consequences.  It is important for your child to know that you will follow through.  If you have to discipline your child, remind them that they made the choice to misbehave, so they must accept the consequences.
