I won’t pretend to know everything when it comes to raising kids. Today I decided to find an expert (Dr. Dana Obleman from KidstheManual.com) to help me with an issue I’ve been having with my kids – not listening when I tell them to do something. She made this lovely video explaining exactly what you can do when you find that your children aren’t listening to you. I think you’ll like this video as much as I did.
After watching this, I realize I’m trying to get too much done at once and ask my children to do something when I’m telling them to do it in passing. I’m going to start doing like she says – getting in their line of vision to make my requests and implementing consistent consequences without becoming frustrated.
I have some big changes to make, and now I feel a little bit more prepared for my mom days ahead 🙂
