Behaviour and Consequences

How often have you been so frustrated with your young child's misbehaviour that you start delivering a whole lot of negative consequences. Consequences are important, both positive and negative, but when you get a stand-off with your young one who doesn't seem to be responding, you end up giving consequences that proceed into tomorrow or beyond, eg “Right we are not going to Nana and Grandad's tomorrow," or “No iPad tomorrow."

Try to give consequences that are immediate and are implemented today as tomorrow is a new day. You can start afresh tomorrow as your child might 
be well-behaved and doesn't need a lingering negative consequence hanging over him/her especially when he/she deserves a positive consequence. Besides poor old nana and grandad won't be able to see their grandchild.
