Asian Girl Smiles SMALL
 
Kids Understand Feelings When Parents Help


THIS PARENTING GIFT HELPS CHILDREN EXPERIENCE EMPATHY. It includes 8 discussion questions for building character through friendly chats.

Consider discussing a new question once each week because it will give your child time to reflect and practice caring skills. Dinners, car rides, and bedtimes are perfect for these discussions. Use words like:

1. Would you explain a little more? 

2. I like how you think.

3. How did you come to think that way?

4. Do you have any examples?

5. How do your thoughts match your actions? 

Don’t lecture your child on what to think. Rather, find out what he thinks and why. Accept his ideas without arguing. You can add your thoughts later by also answering the questions in today's gift.

Remember, if you force your ideas, your child may get stubborn and rebel against them.

“Unspoiling” Your Child –10 Practical Parenting Tips

 

Laundry Boy SMALL
TAKE A STAND AGAINST DISRESPECT!

If your children treat you like a doormat, chances are you’re a loving parent who gives too much and expects too little. You CAN take a stand!

Today's parenting suggestions may be difficult because your child won’t like them. He isn’t supposed to like them. Use them only if you’ll be consistent because if you don’t follow through you’ll look weaker than ever. If you are consistent, eventually you’ll get the respect you deserve. It will take time.

The first parenting suggestion, “Be determined to change!” is important. Without determination things won’t change. Being the parent means being a strong leader, guide, and coach.

Walk Away Mom SMALL
DON'T ACCEPT VERBAL ABUSE! WALK AWAY!


There’s a time to show love and there’s a time to be in charge. Saying "No" and then giving in shows weakness not love. To become a blend of kindness and firmness works best. And when kids are already spoiled, be firm.

You’ll find 10 top parenting solutions for becoming firm. Take a deep breath. Follow the suggestions, and help your child become a respectful caring person.

Sassy Sarcastic Poem for Building Character in Your Child

Rejected Girl
Sassy Isn't Classy!

Our character building poem for kids includes rude behavior, the problems that mouthy behavior can cause, and how to solve them. Please share this parenting gift with your children.

The poem is about Tyler Tanners, a boy with sarcastic manners. When he put down his dad, there were consequences he didn't like.

Fortunately, a character comes to his rescue. Find out who he is and what he suggests in our poem, "Sassy Isn't Classy."

After you read it with your children, discuss these questions to find out their thoughts about sassy behavior:

  1. What's wrong with sarcastic behavior?
  2. How can being sassy hurt friendships?
  3. What do you think of sassy sarcastic kids?
  4. If you were the parent of a child who acted rudely toward you, what would you do?
  5. What advice would you give children who sass?

Using these discussion questions helps your children think more clearly and talk more deeply about the problem. When they respond with good solutions be sure to praise their answers. It is hoped they will follow them.

To pick up your gift, "Sassy Isn't Classy," insert the word, SASSY at:

The Mouthy Child: Gift - 9 Best Parenting Answers

Sass is dead if you say, "Stop sassing me!"              

Mom hands stopping
Stop Sassing Me!

Then you must show you mean it by following  through with consequences. The trick is to catch your child being rude as soon as she starts becoming sarcastic. Don't let it become a habit because it will be more difficult to change. Not impossible but more difficult.

You'll also need to ask your child to think ahead and tell you how he will respond in the future to avoid the sass. Insist on an answer. If your child refuses, use a consequence. 

Reacting to Rudeness

Don't return the sarcasm by saying, “I see you're rolling your eyeballs again. Did you ever find a brain back there?” Sarcastic replies invite volleys of mean-spirited sass. You want to cut it off not rev it up.

Make your goal to model respectful behavior when reacting to your child's obnoxious retorts. Make sure you look and feel in control of yourself even if you need to let time pass before you respond.

Responding to Sassiness:

Our parenting gift offers 9 answers to sassy sarcasm that you can easily use. If your youngster needs a stronger consequence, consider not doing something he wants you to do or taking something away that fits his sarcasm.
