I recently gave a parenting workshop at Pediatrics of NY called “5 Secrets to Get Your Child to Listen Without Yelling.” The workshop included 5 principles of empirically-based parent training techniques. Below is a highlight video from the workshop.
These principles below help reduce and prevent behavior problems in children. They were designed for and have been most researched in children ages 3-12. Parents who use these skills show improved morning, homework, and bedtime routines, as well as decreased conflict among family members.
Secret #1: The Right Attitude
Secret #2: Effective Communication
Secret #3: Positive Attention
Secret #4: Active Ignoring
Secret #5: Consequences: Time Out & Loss of Privileges
