Taking a Stand

Eighty percent of communication is nonverbal. Be aware of your facial expressions and tone of voice. Don’t be afraid to take a stand with your child when they misbehave. Make sure your voice sounds firm not angry. If you appear angry your child will see you as being mean and dictatorial and you will be ineffective. It doesn’t harm a child when you speak to them in a firm voice. A firm voice will be much more effective.
