  • Be consistent with the consequences when the child fails to follow the guidelines/rules/expectations/agreements.
  • Carry out this ‘follow through’ routine with firm and friendly explanations. It is not the time for protracted negotiations or arguments. It’s time to mean what you say.
  • Don’t undertake this routine if you do not intend to follow through 1001 times in response to the child testing your resolve 1000 times.
