Practice Positive Parenting: How Positive Phrasing Can Help Kids Make Better Choices!

Raising children can sometimes be exhausting and frustrating. Remembering to speak positively with your children will not only help your child to choose more positive behaviors, but can also create a more positive home environment for all. When stating expectations for your child, always phrase your statement in the positive. Some examples:

  • Instead of "Don't hit your brother” say "Be kind to your brother."
  • Instead of "Don't interrupt” say "Wait until I'm finished speaking.”
  • Instead of "Don't play with the ball inside" say "Please play with that toy outside."

Positive phrasing helps children to feel safe and cared for as they practice making positive choices. Happy positive parenting!
