    Usually, we pull them aside and give them a time out. It's important for them to realize it's not right and they can't get away scott free. Everyone has to do their chores. #CleaningAsAFamily
  4. I get to eye level with them and tell them in a normal voice that the behavior is not allowed and if it continues them something will be taken away for a few days. In my 17 year olds case her phone lol

    I restate what is expected of them and the consequences or rewards of what will happen afterwards. Then I ignore them. I don't put up with the whining, just go on with my business.

    I tell them that it's not okay, but also try not to react if necessary. I have a lot of patience too.

    Sometimes I have to step away and let their daddy or grandma or grandpa deal with them. It can be tough and stressful at times.

    A8- Relax, this will happen when they are trying to disagree with what is happening. Take a time out an reevaluate to see their point of view #CleaningAsAFamily

    Well usually I tell them to make a good decision, and that if they do they will not be consequences like no TV. Sometimes that works sometimes it doesn't... lol
  11. Thats a good idea, sometimes it's best to step away and let dad take over.

    A8: Honestly, I completely ignore it LOL As long as they aren't hurting themselves. It has worked wonders so far, if they don't get the negative attention they're looking for, they give up LOL #CleaningAsAFamily

    If my son starts having a tantrum, we have a chill out corner that he has to go sit in until he calms down. We started it when he was two and now he is six. Works great!
  19. I had to do that because my throat hurt from yelling at them all day, lol

    I can honestly say... tantrums never was an occurence. The "push back" syndrome really wasn't a factor either. I just got that "NO" comment from my son A LOT. Children try us.... but mommy doesn't do tantrums LOL! #nipthatinthebudquick! =) #CleaningAsAFamily
