Getting Calls From Your Child’s Teacher?

By October 14, 2015 Respect No Comments

Are you getting calls from your child’s teacher?  Wondering what the best way is to teach your child the lessons she needs in order to do well in school?

The two most common questions parents ask their child about bad school behavior are:

  1.  What happened?
  2. Why did you do that?

Children typically respond with “I don’t know” and the experience becomes frustrating for both of you.  Watch the video here to learn more about shifting misbehavior into respect and listening.

It’s common to over-punish children out of fear that either they’re “not getting it” or you’re not doing a “good” job parenting.  However, the answer is more about understanding why your child is compelled to act out and the best approach for addressing – and improving – behavior.
