Episode 221

It can be so frustrating when we do something fun for our children — take them somewhere, play a game with them — and then when we ask them to do what they have to do — brush their teeth, go to bed — they don’t listen! Shouldn’t doing things for our kids make it more likely that they’ll do what we ask?

In this episode, you’ll learn:

  • Why “deposits” don’t always improve behavior
  • Why giving them what they want may even make behavior worse 
  • What your children really need in those situations in order to behave better
