Dr. M., educational psychologist, shows parents how to teach children to “listen” and follow directions of the first request.
By repeating directions to children, parents accidentally teach the child not to listen. The child knows that he/she will have a second or third chance. By ensuring a child learns that listening and following through the first time told, this common child behavior problem can be reduced or eliminated.
Applying behavioral psychology principles to parenting can result in happier parents and happier children. This is because stress is taken out of the relationship.
