3 Things to Keep in Mind When Setting Limits

Here are three things to keep in mind when setting a limit for your child:

1. stay calm – tension usually breeds more tension.
2. use as few words as possible to explain your idea – children often tune out long adult explanations.
3.Don’t let your child’s upset “get the best of you”, only change your mind if you can tell that your idea (after thinking it over) wasn’t quite right.
