We want our kids to listen, and often the way we attempt to motivate them is to try to find ways to MAKE them listen — punishments, rewards, etc. But for some kids, the more we try to MAKE them listen, the less they actually do!

In this episode, you will learn: 

  • Why trying to “make” kids listen backfires
  • How you may be decreasing your positive influence rather than increasing it 
  • Specific steps you can take to turn things around so that your children actually WANT to listen to you
