QUICK TIP: Catch Your Child Being Good!
As a parent, often a lot of energy is spent teaching, guiding, and setting limits with your child. Practice shifting your energy and catching your child being good! When you notice your child engaging in positive behaviors, say what you see and provide encouragement. This not only strengthens the parent-child relationship, but also motivates your child.
Examples: "You cleaned up your toys all by yourself!" or "I see you worked very hard on that project!"
