Children's Hospital is part of the UPMC family.
If you tell your children to do something and they don’t do it, try this: Change your child’s behavior by using a calm, clear command. For example: Let’s say you told your child to turn off the TV and she ignored you. Follow these steps and command your child, “Turn off the TV now.”
When you don’t like what your child is doing but it is not causing harm, just ignore it! (For example: whining, making silly noises) You can respond by not responding. Children often stop bad behavior when you ignore them, since they are just looking for attention.
Note: Parents should not ignore a child if he is causing physical harm.
Use time-out to stop bad behavior and to help your child gain inner control. Do not use it as a punishment. Use it to help your child calm down.
Time-out works best for big behavior problems, like hitting or out-of-control screaming. Try using time-out when all else fails.
Sticker charts reward children for good behavior. Tell children how the chart will work, and tell them how they have to behave to get their stickers. When they earn a certain number of stickers, give them a special reward that you have chosen together. Sticker charts can help your kids learn to make their beds, clean up, do homework, etc.
