Kids And Daily Duties

* Children need time to learn and perform daily responsibilities. Be patient!

* Your child will also need time to adjust to changes in your disciplinary style. If you've given him reason to believe you mean business only when you shout, he'll have to unlearn that attitude before the remedies described here can work.

* Try incentives, such as progress charts, before resorting to consequences, especially with younger children. That way you'll create a positive reinforcement for doing the desired task.

* If and when consequences is mentioned, your child must understand that it will be carried out if the stated rule has been broken. Only then will he or she realize that he or she makes the choices about his/her behavior. Will he/she follow the rule and avoid consequence or ignore the rule and suffer the consequence?
