No. Stop. Don’t. As parents, these words come up a lot. If you’ve found yourself saying these more often than you’d like, it’s no wonder you’re feeling like a broken record. But your voice becomes your child’s inner voice, so what inner voice are you creating for your kids when you say these words?
Instead of telling your kids what not to do, I want you to consider changing your approach. Start telling them what you do want them to do instead. Paint the picture of what success looks like, and communicate what needs to be done. This simple tip is a gamechanger, and the effects you’ll see will blow your mind.
In this episode, I’m sharing three reasons to move away from no, stop, and don’t, and showing you what to say instead to get your kids to listen. This small change will result in you seeing your kids in a much more positive light, and by focusing on the positives, you can be your kids’ coach instead of their critic.
