How to Encourage Your Child's Positive Behavior?

When you provide positive, consistent direction to your children, they quickly learn how to behave. This includes offering your child praise and attention when they behave well and utilizing penalties when they need to be guided toward more positive behavior.

Here are some helpful hints for putting this positive attitude into action.

Your bond is critical in encouraging your child to positive behavior. Spending time with your child playing, reading, or speaking can help you develop a close and loving bond. It is also crucial to provide your child positive attention such as hugs, smiles, and encouragement.

2.Use your own actions to instruct your youngster. Your child observes you to learn how to act, and what you do is sometimes far more important than what you say. If you want your youngster to say "please," say it yourself. You should speak quietly and calmly if you don't want your child to raise their voice.

3. Telling your child how their behavior affects you honestly allows them to see their own feelings in yours. And starting sentences with 'I' allows your youngster to see things from your point of view. It's preferable to discuss feelings when both of you are calm.

4.Nod while your child speaks and repeat back what you believe your child is feeling. 'It sounds like you were disappointed when Amit refused to let you join his game,' for example. This makes your youngster feel listened to, appreciated, and at ease.

5. When you keep your commitments, your child will grow to trust and appreciate you. When you promise something wonderful to your child, he or she learns that you will not let them down, and he or she also learns not to try to change your mind once you explain the consequences. So, if you say you'll go for a stroll after your child picks up their toys, make sure you have your walking shoes on hand. If you threaten your three-year-old with quiet time if they don't stop throwing dirt, be prepared to follow through.

7.Instructions should be simple, brief, and age-appropriate so that your child may understand and remember them. Positive regulations are usually preferable to negative ones because they positively guide your child's behavior. For example, 'Please lock the gate' is preferable to 'Don't leave the gate open'. If you need to advise your child to stop doing something, always tell them what to do instead, such as 'Stop jumping on the bed, and please sit on the bed'.

8. As your child grows older, you can offer them more responsibility for their own actions. You can also allow your youngster to face the natural repercussions of his or her behavior. For example, if your child is responsible for packing for a sleepover and forgets their favorite pillow, the logical result is that your child will have to sleep without the pillow for the night.

9. Set your child up for good behavior and then praise them for it. Give your child some simple duties or activities they can do to help the household, for example. Praise for your child's behavior and work will inspire him or her to keep going. Giving your child a lot of experience with a duty helps them develop better at it, feel good about it, and want to continue doing it.
