"Please put your shoes on already!" - is that situation familiar? Do you find yourself asking your children to do things over and over again? Do you resort to threats or bribes? Are you already exhausted from the ongoing struggle?
Yes, the struggle is real. But in fact, it shouldn't be THAT hard. If only you would know some basic ways to ask your children to do something and actually want to cooperate... Well, this is what I teach you in this episode of The Apparently Parent Podcast.
No, this is no magic formula! And you can't make your children 100% compliant (and who would want that anyway?). What you will learn is to differentiate between an instruction and a request, when to use each type and how.
Using what you learn in this episode will help you get the cooperation of your children in a much calmer way, and even empower them every now and then.
