When I ask parents to reconsider how they approach their kids as they get older, a common concern I hear is, “Well, am I just going to let them get away with it?” The answer is simple, “No.”
When I think of all the times my kids have responded to me by yelling, being sarcastic, or even by being disrespectful, I cannot think of a single time that I improved the situation by demanding that their behavior stop….not once.
Almost every time we go out, I get compliments about how well-behaved my kids are. It’s not a coincidence. They didn’t just come that way. I have a secret. And I am willing to share that secret with you! You ready for it?
