How to Outsmart Your Kids With Child Psychology

Looking for strategies to help stay in control of your children? I came across this short little video from howcast.com and though mostly aimed at parents with younger children, I think the tips will have value for all. Covers strategies like:

– Instead of telling your kids what not to do, tell them what they should do

– When you want your child to do something they may not want to do, provide a few choices

– Use reverse psychology by forbidding them to do something you want them to do

– Turn commands into challenges

– Add a silly element to a request

– Never use a bribe to get a child to eat something

– Remain calm if your child acts up – especially if you usually get emotional

Though the video is short, I thought it offered some great tips. What do you think?
