One of the things that can be most challenging about parenting a strong-willed child, is dealing with the way they treat you. Strong-willed kids tend to be sassier, use more back talk, yell more frequently, and say unkind things than other kids. Our strong-willed kids don’t do this because they’re mean, they do it out of an effort to get what they want. But understanding that doesn’t make it any easier to deal with it day in and day out.
Today, we’re going to give you a tool that will help your kids learn to treat you with more kindness and respect. What’s great about this tool is that it can be used in ALL of your human relationships not just in your parent-child relationship.
