Getting Kids to Listen
One of the hardest parts of parenting is getting our kids to listen to us, and then, of course, getting them to do what we ask!
If you remember to use a few important skills this job will be much easier for you. Insha Allah
Think before you speak.
You tell your daughter it’s time to leave, then take twenty more minutes to get yourself ready. You ask your kids to clean up the family room, then allow the mess to remain for the night. You threaten to cancel your child’s trip if he speaks badly to you again. He does, but you don’t. All these scenes create kids who have “selective hearing.” Instead, take a minute to think before you issue a command, be specific, and your words will become more accurate and meaningful.
