What to do with a smart mouth know it all 6 years

The other day I was talking to another stay at home moms and asked them if they were in difficulties. “Yes”, an almost immediately, “discipline problems with my 6 years smart mouth know-it-all, I do not want to spank, and are not, but it seems to mock the dead time, loss of privileges, etc. What should I do? ”

Ahhh .. the joys of independence in children. I found working with children that are imposed when the negative consequences (loss of privileges, downtime, etc.), simply do not work. My opinion and I’m trying to do is to always leave your child has a choice in hand. For example: the six years (and all ages, for that matter) does not listen. You’re asking to withdraw their room. Ignore you and do what they want. Instead of saying “if you do not listen, there will be a consequence (time out, loss of privileges, etc.) Try to reformulate and say to your children, boys or girls who want to watch TV later have their own room in the next 20 minutes (or whatever the word for you within reason). Make a positive statement instead of bad. You can also use any sort of reward, not to be privileges TV (formerly snack out of play
call minutes of playing time, etc.)

This technique allows the child to determine their own destiny. If
choose to listen and to clean their room while watching television.
If you choose not to listen, then unfortunately you get to watch
television. Let the simple things. I am a neat freak myself that leaving
table for your child is hard! But just tell your child, I’m very comfortable with
Your decision not to clean the room, unfortunately, have also made
decision not to watch TV too. The key here is to stay positive and clams
have made the decision, and feet.

Naturally, you are bound to be tears and comment on your road does not
allow children to watch TV. Again, keep things simple and remember that your baby had a choice to clean their rooms and watch TV or do not clean their rooms and watch TV Remind them that you love and are very comfortable with their choice . After some time of making the wrong choice, the children finally begin to make the right choice for them. The key to your success to this problem is to stay calm and positive.

Remember to always stay positive and clams, no matter how hard it is!
