When a Young Child Acts Out: Get On Your KNEES!
What To Do: Tell them clearly what is wrong with their behavior and outline exactly what you want them to to instead. Finally, finish by telling them that you want them to try it your way because you want to keep them safe and happy. The last point is important because it helps to remind the child that this is not a power struggle and that you don't secretly love having control over them!
P.S. The little girl in the photo above really could be my 3-year old daughter, and I wish I were joking!
