Let me preface this by saying that I don’t have all the answers when it comes to parenting—every child and situation is different, and I can only speak on what I know, which is what has worked in my family. Time and time again, I find that consistency is the most favorable option, because kids respond well to what they know they can expect. My children know what lurks behind bad choices, they know when they hear a certain tone in my voice that I mean business, and they also know that they will be praised for good behavior. That’s the other key ingredient: encouragement. I encourage my children when they illustrate the behaviors we have talked about together, because even though that may be the expectation, I’m still proud of them for rising to it. #BELEAFINFATHERHOOD
