As a parent, you are going to have to discipline your child who ignores consequences at some point in your life.
You want to make sure that your consequences have meaning so that your child can learn from the mistake that they made.
You also want to make the consequences black and white so your child can understand clearly what will happen if they behave poorly.
Finally, make sure that you are paying attention to your child’s behavior after they face their consequences to see if it is working.
- Make sure that you use consequences that have meaning so that your child will understand the consequence and also learn from it if it’s broken.
- Try to talk to your child about problem solving and encourage them to find ways that they can effectively solve problems in their every day life.
- Don’t get into an argument with your child over consequences, as that will cause nothing but unnecessary stress between the two of you.
