What to Do if Your Children Are Brats

This is a continuation from an article that I read at Oprah website.

1. Reward good behavior and punish bad behavior.

2. f your children yell when they want something, don't give it to them and take away something they like.

3. If they won't get off the floor during a tantrum, pick them up and put them in their room until they calm down and apologize.

4. If they ignore you when you tell them to do something, punish them immediately. Put them in a corner and don't let them out until they apologize.

5. If they won't share, take away the toy or treat.

6. Don't buy them whatever they want. Make them earn things.

7. If they keep a messy room, don't let them out until it's clean.

8. Enforce bedtimes. Continually put them back into their beds. After a while, they'll stop getting out. You must show there is no other option.

9. Compliment your children profusely and give them rewards when they do the right thing.

Take note: Although I have no children of my own but I can attest that this things work. My mother is a disciplinarian and I commend her for that. She truly is a wonderful mother. She discipline us because she loves us so much. I am very proud to say that she did well raising her 12 children and that includes me.
