A simple trick to avoid power struggles with your child

childAvoid power struggles by telling your child what you do instead of demands, orders or yelling what he should be doing and not doing.

You will then see how to invite the child to a power struggle:
“Sam, these blocks together in this moment!”.

Sam, with its burgeoning need for autonomy, are naturally annoyed to be sent. The challenge with a firm NO. You have decided to force their obedience using some form of intimidation. He accepted the challenge and have a run, with no apparent exit either. This is what happens when a parent tries to control the body or your child’s options.

Fortunately, there is another way:
“Sam, it’s time to save. If within 5 minutes there is still a toy on the floor, I will keep on a high shelf in the garage for a while. ”

This statement does not leave room for Sam to discuss, and no need to try intimidation techniques to force obedience. You will be fine with whatever he decides. In fact, if you’re like me, waiting to let him do it, because you will not mind a few less toys lying around the house! You control your own body and its decisions. He controls his own.
