Importance of Summer Camp for your Child’s Health
5 Steps to More Effective Parenting
1. Boosting Your Child's Self-Esteem
Choose your words carefully and be compassionate. Let your kid know that everyone makes mistakes and that you still love them, even when you don’t love their behavior.
2. Catch Kids Being Good
Make a point of finding something praise everyday. Be generous with rewards- your love, hugs, and compliments can work wonders.
4. Set Limits and Be Consistent with Your Discipline
You might want to have a system in place: one warning, followed by consequences such as “time out” or loss of privileges.
4. Be a Good role Model
Model the traits you wish to see in your kids: respect, friendliness, honesty, kindness, tolerance. Exhibit unselfish behavior.
Make your expectations clear. If there is a problem describe it, express your feelingsand invite your child to work on a solution with you.
