We work hard to develop well behaved and respectful children. There’s one area though, in raising lovely children, that often gets overlooked.
Parents tend to have a list of consequences and punishments that should work, or at the very least be bad behaviour deterrents. Here’s a spoiler- the list doesn’t always work, and when it doesn’t, parents find themselves exhausted and confused. There are times when the lengthy lectures, reasoning, time out, withdrawal of privileges, writing letters of apology, extra jobs given, no outings, just won’t do the trick.
