There are certain tasks that have to get done every day — tasks like brushing their teeth, doing their homework, or even leaving their siblings alone.
And even though you KNOW your kids are able to complete these tasks easily (after all, they’ve done them over and over before!), each day they complain or whine or take forever to do what they’re supposed to do.
Instead of repeating this cycle day after day, it is much more efficient to understand WHY kids struggle so much with these daily tasks… and give them tools to do better. When you do that, you’ll finally see the long-term results in more effective interactions and less negativity.
In this episode, you’ll learn:
- Exactly why it really is hard for kids to do the “monotonous” tasks that they have to do each day.
- Why it’s important to work with kids’ brains instead of against them (and what that looks like)
- A long-game strategy that you can use to motivate your children to do the things they need to do while still maintaining a positive relationship
