Tips & Warnings

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 24-01-2007

  • Model the behavior you want your children to exhibit by picking up your personal items and putting them away. Even make comments out loud about putting your things away

  • Try making a game out of cleanup or offer a reward such as going outside or painting

  • Remain neutral in tone of voice and posture when following through with a consequence. Children can read frustration and anger and sometimes act negatively because of it

  • You may have to change consequences periodically if they fail to be effective

  • Consult a professional family doctor if you experience extreme frustration or anger when disciplining your child.
