- Build a relationship
Try to establish a bond of mutual relationship based on understanding. Understanding happens when only you invite cooperation.
- Invite co-operation
For instance, if grandparents are visiting, you can either tell your kids what to do or you can invite them to actively participate in the occasion by involving them and making them understand the importance of working together.
Inviting kids to cooperate encourages them to voluntarily contribute, while keeping your expectations clear.
Kids that usually rebel against their parent’s demands will often happily cooperate when they are invited rather than told what to do.
- Don’t demand the trust
Earn the trust not by reinforcing verbally but by reinforcing through situations and making the kids aware of their future possibilities and impact.
- Make them understand the result of their actions
One should really get into the kid’s shoes and try to make them understand through analogies and examples close to the kids, like using their favourite cartoon or game characters to make them better adaptive and understanding to situations.
