Take the time with your children to develop guidelines for reasonable behaviour.
Children need guidelines and boundaries. It is very confusing for children if they do not know what the rules or expectations are. Agreements about these need to be carefully worked out, explained and adhered to.
The suggestion here is to try to express guidelines as a series of do’s rather than a series of don’ts.
Be positive rather than negative. Keeping the list short helps everyone to remember and learn!
Begin to develop deeper motivations for keeping within the expected guidelines.
Make a difference … share your story or idea!
It takes a village to raise a child. (African Proverb) … a cliché, but true!
