We know that it’s important to stay calm when we’re asking children to do something. But what happens when we stay calm and kids STILL don’t listen or do what they’re supposed to do? Is yelling or threatening our only option (especially when that seems to be the only thing that motivates them)?

In this episode, you will learn: 

  • Why children likely don’t listen, even when you’re calm
  • What you need to consider if you want your children to act responsible 
  • How to set your child up for success so they listen more and resist less
