Don't give in to your child's demands

No means no when it comes to your children too. But many parents find it easier to give in to their child's demands, whether it be for another cookie or to watch a favorite show. But your actions are detrimental to your child's behavior.

The problem is that once you give into a demand, the child learns that they can manipulate your behavior by screaming, yelling, kicking, or whatever bad behavior ended up with getting her what she wanted in the first place.

Children, even small toddlers, are smarter than you think. Even giving in once to bad behavior can make it one hundred times harder to enforce the rules the next time around. If you say it is bathtime, it is bathtime - don't let him watch ten more minutes of television before he has to have his bath, simply because he had a temper tantrum.
