How To Train Your Child
Your child is rapidly growing into a young adult. Along with academics, it is important that your child learns discipline as well.This is a vital life lesson that will stand her in good stead throughout her life, so it is essential that you start early.
Your child has to be taught that certain rules and regulations need to be followed. The easiest way to implement the same is by following this and mandate them for yourself. Set an example for your child to follow. For instance, if your child is not allowed to watch television while eating food, this should apply to everyone. Rules must be followed equally by all family members.
Another way of effectively teaching your kid to obey rules is to make her aware that there are consequences if rules are not followed. For example, if she does not brush her teeth every night, she would not be allowed her favourite chocolate for a couple of days. Don't use a tone of blackmail here, as she may get the wrong impression. So, also give her the reasoning, that if she doesn't brush her teeth at night, she is likely to develop a list of oral care problems, like bad breath, cavity, etc.
