You might be surprised how much negative talk occurs in the home. As part of training children we seem to say “Don’t” many more than we say “Great job.” Some homes feel like one never-ending war zone. This kind of environment is very tiring and destructive for both parents and children.
It is important for parents not to hammer their children on every little thing wrong. Children will learn much faster if we concentrate on one area of improvement at a time for correction, and at the same time praise liberally for things done right. Once one area has been mastered, they can move onto the next one.
