my child is not listeningeducation Corner
How old is your child? I am guessing that you are telling that your child is back answering! 1. Talking back is a sign of getting your attention. It is a negative form of getting attention but it is better than getting no attention. 2. Play detective- find out why he is doing so? Sometimes it may also mean that he undergoing some stress at school- some friendship issue or bullying or teacher related issue. This will help you to resolve the issues. 3. Sometimes it is just a phase of growing up. Set firm rules and consequences. When he talks back, tell firmly that you are not upset with him but you are upset about the way he is talking; so once he calms down you are willing to listen to him. This will reassure him. 4. Tell him if he behaves so he will lose some privileges immediately and please follow this action. if you don't children will repeat their behaviour. 5. Model the behviour you expect from your child. 6. Praise him or give a treat whenever he is polite and behaves well. This will encourage him.
