New from Dr. Charles Fay!
Chapter 3 in this books asks: Is Your Child Polite and Respectful?
So, How do you help your children be more polite and respectful?
- "Eaves drop parenting" is a Love and Logic tool that works! When your children hear you talking about your job, your boss, politicians, police... do they hear you being respectful? Do they hear thankfulness and gratitude (a key ingredient in respect) expressed or do they hear all the negatives. Give your kids plenty of opportunities to be around respectful, thankful adults including you.
- Provide healthy alternatives to television: Too much of what they content on TV and on the internet is disrespectful and impolite. Good [parenting involves setting good limits.
- Lead with empathy!
- Expect thankfulness and politeness.
- Reward thankfulness and politeness
