Good luck With That - Tips On Parenting

by Judith Rachmani
(Ramat Gan, Israel)

  • 1) Split The Kids Up: If possible, each child should have his own room with his own toys in it. When the children squabble, no matter who started it, each child should be sent to his own room.

  • 2) Split The Kids Up: If possible, on family outings, one adult should be responsible for one child. For example, at an amusement park, one child pairs off with the mother, the other child pairs off with the father, and each child is free to explore the amusement park as he wishes with his designated parent.

  • 3) Give The Kids Choices: For example, let the child chose which outfit he'll put on in the morning - from three different outfits that you've put together for him.

  • 4) Predict The Future: For example, say to the child, "We are going to the supermarket to buy healthy groceries and one candy bar which you are allowed to pick out for yourself".

  • 5) Learn To Sing And Dance The Cancan: If possible, take your child only to local venues where his friends may possibly see him and warn him that you will sing and dance the cancan loudly if he misbehaves. If he misbehaves, sing and dance the cancan loudly until he stops misbehaving.

  • 6) Repeat Yourself: For example, say "Please pick up your dirty socks and put them in the laundry hamper" over and over again until the dirty socks are safely in the laundry hamper.

  • 7) Be Polite: For example, say "Thank you" after your child finally puts his dirty socks in the laundry hamper.

  • 8) Set A Good Example: Eat only healthy foods, exercise, treat everyone (including your spouse and children) with consideration and politeness and do your chores promptly.

  • 9) Praise The Deed, Not The Child: For example, it's the child's chore to set the table every night. After he sets the table, don't say, "You're a good boy. You set the table every night". It isn't convincing. Instead, say, "Wow! The table looks great - with everything set out in its place". The child will come to the conclusion that he's great because he set the table.

  • 10) Apologize: Apologize promptly when you wrong your child.

Click N Kids would have to be one of my subscribers most popular programs, and from what they say, it is mostly because the kids have fun while they are learning. In fact they don't even realize they are learning! Click N kids are using the Looney Tune Characters now in their phonics program, which of course kids just love.
