• Involve your child in discussions about rules and routines.
• Give specific instructions, keep it short and simple.
• Be consistent: Children need to know precisely what you expect. You have to remain the same regardless of the situation.
• Make sure that you prep your child and yourself about the big day:
• Talk to your child, let them know what is going to happen
• Walk them through the process.
Parents feel like a failure when the child is not succeeding, but you simply need to reassess the situation and look at it differently. As the parent, you must comprehend that this is just a rough patch and there is light at the end of the tunnel.
• Teach Listening Skills
• Have the child repeat back what they’ve heard before they take action.
• Memory Games
• Discipline appropriately based on age.
• Preschoolers are fine with time out only
