How to Make Your Child Do What They Don’t Want
by 20 January 2017 23 h 51 min0
Offering rewards to your child or giving kids rewards really works to teach them certain things. It may temporarily be useful, while sometimes it works in a negative way. For example, if your child finds pleasure in painting and you start paying to do so, then soon they quit from doing painting when the pay stopped. So it is really important for the parent to learn the mind of their child and to create a thrill among them to do the work. Thus he/she will find interest in doing the work and that real feeling of mastery is extremely motivating.
Have meaningful talk:
Meaningful One-on-one conversation with your child is a significant thing. Young children are curious to know about certain things. So try to help them out by making them understand why something makes sense. That may appeal to their intellect in a better way rather than forcing them to do something. Teach them a life lesson like to keep their things neat and organised.
Hug their shortcoming:
Do not show anger when your children loses their love of doing chores. Children should think that what they are doing is their own choice rather than an obligation. So saying them, “you cannot do it” will create a challenge in them and they start following definitely “I can do it”. Again, all you need is to learn their mind and finding out the ways to give them a feeling of autonomy.
Apart from all these, the parents should keep a watch on the learning capabilities of their kids. Try to make out why a particular activity is causing trouble to him/her in learning or doing. Have a meaningful conversation with your little one regarding the issue. Take the help of a paediatrician; his/her class teacher or a counsellor for more assistance if needed.
