Violations, a Better Way to Talk

teach kids how to make better decisions through communication

The worst time to talk about bad behavior is at the time of the incident, when both you and your child are upset. Violations helps you move this conversation to a later time, when you are about to pay them and have their attention.

Verbally address the problem

be clear about defining the problem and why to avoid it

When you see something you don't like, tell them they are going to have to get a ticket if they continue. Then cite the reason that the behavior is harmful to themselves or to others. 

Let them decide

give your children trust by letting them make decisions

Either they'll stop or they'll keep going. A lot of times they are going to explore their ability to control the situation and that's fine. If there is no physical danger, and they are continuing, let them decide to get a ticket. Verbally announce it and if you have the tickets on you, write it out in front of them for visual impact. You may have to resort to other ways of stopping them before they really understand the impact that tickets have on their ability to do things.

The Daily Review

reinforce the message for your kids by recalling it later

After going over the positive things they've done, ask them if they got any tickets that day. If they can recall why they shouldn't have done it, great. If not, repeat what happened, the reason you don't want that type of behavior and what they should do the next time. 

The Verdict

let your kids experience the consequences of their actions

You can either let it pass, soften the blow by asking them which currency you should deduct from or simply deduct from whichever one you choose from. Ask them if they remember what they should do for the next time.

Tip: If they repeat it correctly and you let it slide at this point, they will realize that remembering what you say gets rewarded.
