Do you have a tough time thinking of what to do when your children misbehave? Do you take away television privileges or send them off to their room? The real question is, are those punishments actually teaching a lesson and a different behavior? If your kids continue to do the same things, over and over, without learning from being grounded or having toys taken away, start teaching with logical consequences. Logical consequences are those that have an action directly linked to the behavior. For example, for a child who leaves dishes all over the house, a logical consequence would be to enforce the rule that he may no longer take food out of the kitchen. Additionally, as a logical consequence, he will help you with diner dishes for one week. Keeping food in the kitchen teaches that it is a privilege to take food elsewhere, and washing the dishes is directly linked to leaving dirty dishes around. No need for yelling or grounding, just teach with a logical lesson! Read more in my article “Consistency and teaching outside the event key”.
