5 TIPS to help Parents prevent violent behaviour:
1.) Work on CONNECTION - create opportunities to be more in-sync with your child on a daily basis and in challenging times. Let them know you are there to support, love and guide them by verbalizing it, using your body language and presence.
2.) Exercise LEADERSHIP - as a parent, it's your role to guide, teach and lead children through life. By using respect and validation with a child in challenging times, this can help children understand you want to work through the problems together.
3.) Clear EXPECTATIONS - teach children what is expected of them in all routines and times of day. Create boundaries around behaviour, reactions and problem solving for a more positive outcome.
4.) CORRECT the behaviour - this seems so obvious but rarely happens. We assume kids know the parts of their behaviour that were right and wrong but by clarifying this for them in a calm and respectful manner, they will be able to fully understand and work with in those boundaries.
5.) VALIDATE their existence - does your face light up when you see your child? let them know they are heard, valued and good contributors to the family, community and in life. Give them a sense of belonging to the greater good.
