Do you ever feel like a broken record, “No John, don’t touch that”, “Mary stop, put it down” To try and get our kids attention or to get them to listen, we often repeat ourselves but to no avail. It is easy to get stuck in this loop and to feel annoyed when your child just doesn't listen. It happens to us all, and it can be exhausting! I am sure you have asked yourself, why aren’t you listening to me? I know you can hear me!
Toddlers are impulsive beings, they can grab, climb, run without thinking of the consequences- kids will be kids. However, it becomes challenging when there is a constant battle around setting boundaries and limits. When the battle is daily and constant, we look at these refusals through a behavioural lens and try to understand why we are getting so much push back- is your child trying to communicate that they want more social connection? They want to avoid a situation. Whatever the answer is, understanding why it is happening will help us support your child with listening.
Here are some tips to support your child with listening:
The above examples give your child a clear alternative and gives them the opportunity to engage in this alternative behaviour. We are creating an opportunity for them to listen and helping them through the decision-making process.
