I have heard many parents bemoan the fact that their children rarely listen to them. They shout requests in vain for hands to be washed, shoes to be donned, and toys to be put away. It’s exhausting to ask someone to do something over and over again. Whether you are speaking to a child (or someone who acts like a child) there are simple guidelines you can follow to grab their attention simply and effortlessly. I have a number of great tips in this video! Enjoy!
You should always know your audience when communicating. That’s a skill that carries over to many different situations in life, of course – including parenting. Be attentive to your audience, connect with them, and be clear.
