16 Signs You’re Raising A Strong-Willed Child
Strong-Willed Children Have Selective Hearing
Reading this titleâ€¦ it seems this one applies to most kids. If a child doesnâ€™t want to listen, he wonâ€™t. Telling a strong-willed child to clean up his rooms or use his listening ears is usually something heâ€™ll ignore. But let his good behavior GET him something in return, and you may discover an obedient child has emerged. Kids love to tune you out, and you have to set the ground rules for listening and following directions. If you didnâ€™t, better late than never. If your child ignores you when you ask him to do something, let him know there will be consequences i.e. taking away privileges or not getting rewards. Make sure to follow up on the consequences as needed. This is the best way to teach your child that what you say has value and that you MEAN what you say.
