As a parent, you have to choose the right words while communicating with your child. Sometimes the wrong communication can adversely affect the child. Try to avoid being spoken to is unacceptable.
By Maggie Macaulay, MS ED Whole Heart Parenting owner, understanding the right to communicate with a child is one of the key success to avoid parenting mistakes. Here are some things to avoid in communicating with the child.
1. Do not give false hope to children
If the child is asking questions that require you to answer questions, show commitment in answering questions. Avoid the word “impossible” to answer the questions raised by the children. ‘Give kids a definitive answer is to ask the deadline to meet the demand for children. Such “mommy will buy you a bike for next month yes”, because the exact answer will be emulated by children in making decisions.
2. Be polite to the child
If you want to ask for help to the children, should communicate clearly and politely. We recommend using phrases like “please, turn off the television.” Turn to the child can also be done by providing something that makes them motivated to do so.
3. Effective way to solve the problem
If you are starting to lose patience with children, it’s easy to tell her to go back to his room so that the situation does not get worse. But according to Macaulay, such measures would not be effective because your child is not going to reflect and correct his mistakes. Macaulay suggested should resolve the issue with the child.
4. Avoid repeated orders to children
When you ask for help to children, avoid asking repeatedly resulting child would be reluctant to do what you are commanded. Give warning to children to perform commands with one saying that the child feels comfortable to do your bidding
5. Distinguishing orders to every child
if you want to give orders to his son to do something quickly, do not equate the order at all ages children, because that will happen they will either meaning. You need to define more clearly the children less than 6 years of age to tell him sooner, such as “time is five minutes ya”.
