Holiday Travel

As we head into this upcoming holiday season, many of you will be traveling and meeting friends. This often seems like open season for children to misbehave. The good news is PBS techniques work here too. Before the event, pre-correct your child – tell them your behavior expectations. During your visit, if you see them doing the right thing specifically praise that they are. If your child forgets during the visit specifically remind them how they are expected to behave.  If unfortunately, that  does not end the undesired behavior, then follow through with the appropriate consequence for their action. It is important for children to understand that you will be consistent with your follow through regardless of the location or audience!  Happy Holidays!
