Getting Kids to Cooperate Without Repeating Yourself – Circle of Moms

The way to teach a child to listen the first time you say something is to show them, consistently, that you’ll take action the minute they don’t listen. So if your “change” is to put your child in timeout, do so as your first action, not as your last resort. If it’s to speak firmly, do that right away. You. Do. Not. Wait.

Simple. Effective. Makes sense right?
