Please do not advice me. I need a practical tips that can be very much applied to my challenge.
Hi, Few practical tips I follow...
My daughter rarely listens to me, except during her 'weak' moments.These could be when she is sick , outside home amidst a group of her friends or she has already got scolding from someone else in the family. Though I won't say ,use these moments, I utilize these times to comfort her assure her I will support her always. This maynot reflect immediately,but will definitely help in the long run, where she wil start listening to me.
- She doesn't listen to me ,but she does have strong faith in someone else ( grandmother,father etc)in my family..I convey my message through them.
- She doesn't directly listen to me..but will always listen when I am talking to someone else,like friend,father etc. I use that time to discuss something about failures etc when I am sure she is overhearing me.
Hope these tips help!
A simple question at this moment will you accept any advice given, it is a “NO” because you have clearly stated that please don’t advice. Same way unless the kids want to listen you cannot make them listen. We have to camouflage the discussion through questions which gives them the power of decision at the same time to understand the consequences clearly. Are you trying to define success and failure to your daughter as it varies with person. Please be specific, as failures are strict teachers than success. Let the children fail in a safe environment. The only thing we need to talk is no matter what don’t give in. Grit is the vital disposition for the future generation. I am not sure whether I have given practical. The only way to make the kids listen to us is by being a good listener to them and earn their trust. It needs perseverance and patience.
Interesting reply! When we try to listen, they will accept our inputs.
