Are you struggling with handling your kids? Children tend to behave badly at times, and as a responsible parent, you may consider becoming stricter – but does that make you a bad parent? When do you know strict is “too strict”? To help you know the difference, here are five ways to manage or handle your kids.
1 – Live by example
Be mindful of your behavior because children follow their parents. How you behave will teach your child what is right and wrong, so first fix any bad habits and behavior you know you have.
2 – Entice them with promises and keep the promises
Kids need motivation, so entice them with promises of gift or anything they love in exchange for good behavior. Eventually, good behavior will grow on them.
3 – Don’t tell everyone when they misbehave
One mistake most parents make is going public with their children’s bad behavior. They must bring it up in family gatherings, share it with grandparents and friends, or even teachers. Without realizing it, parents who do this are encouraging bad behavior by telling the kid that you are famous for this. Who does not like to be famous?
4 – Reinforce better behavior with encouragement
Whenever your child shows goodness, encourage him or her with praise and acknowledgment.
5 – Teach them what respect and tolerance means
You must be a good example and show your kids how to respect and tolerate people. Lead them and they will follow.
