3 Effective Parenting Styles to Help Guide Your Child or Teenager to Go to School

Your child says, "I do not desire to go to school."

1. Understand that your kid speaks a completely different language than you do. They do not have the ability to think abstractly until after the age of 13. "I don't desire to go to school" might suggest a lot of things. A good mom and/or dad will understand the language their kid speaks and will speak in a manner that the kid will understand. Parental responsibility here.

2. Help guide your child to select to go to school by asking them good questions. When your kid is goofing off instead of preparing for school, instead of dictating, "You need to go to school," ask the child a question: "Little Timmy, what should we be doing right now?" He will respond, "Getting prepared for school." Then you could praise him, "Ah, look how smart you are. Exactly what do we need to do to become prepared?" "We need to brush our teeth, eat all of our eggs and toast and get dressed." "Perfect! Little Timmy, you constantly know the right answers. You are so smart, look at you! When you get that finished in the next 10 minutes, we will have time to read that tale you wanted to read before you go."

3. Anything that the child states is essential to them needs to be necessary to you. Instead of dismissing what is necessary for your kid, constantly acknowledge them and say, "Yes, I want you to do that, have that or be that, too. You definitely could do that after you go to school!".

There is constantly a means to state yes, and to lovingly lead your child or young teen to the result that you choose. By comprehending the various languages, empowering your child with the right questions (not abstract ones) and by leading them with love, you will put an end to the parent and kid power struggle forever!

Guide them lovingly, with good questions!
