How can you get your child to listen to you the first time you ask them to do something?
I used to go nuts over my girls' inability to hear me.
Of course I blamed everything on my kids, but once I began to turn inwards and look at my own role in it all, I had a change of heart.
I've finally cracked the secret to getting kids to listen to me the first time I say something. Want in on it?
- Spend some unplugged time together every day. Put away your phone, tablet and computer and spend time together without the electronic distractions.
- Kiss him like you mean it. After a few years of marriage, the ‘hot and heavy’ kissing we once enjoyed often disappears. Add a couple of kids and a busy schedule to the mix, and kissing tends to be relegated to a pathetic peck on the lips a couple of times a day! One way to stay connected to your husband is to kiss him like you mean it – every day!
