The most normal thing is that a child does not obey an order the first time. The most normal thing is that you have to repeat the same thing over and over again until finally he listens to you. Against this 'broken record technique' there is the 'routine technique'. In other words: the solution to avoid losing your temper by having to repeat the same thing a million times is simply to create a routine for children. But how?
It is best to use a routine table, and let the child create it, with your help. As it is his work, he cannot 'slip away' and must respect it. He did it! Let's take an example: wouldn't it help to create a bedtime routine and avoid having to chase your child until 11pm? We explain how to create a table of routines for children through positive discipline.
The idea is that children collaborate in the creation of the routine table, and that they totally agree with what they should do. For that, we can consult them but always deciding ultimately what is best for them. Imagine that you want to make a table of routines for bedtime. You will finally get your child to go to bed without 'complaining'. How? Follow these simple steps:
1. You sit down with your child and tell him that you are going to create a table of bedtime routines. For this you need tell you what things he usually does before going to sleep.
2. Write down everything your child tells you on a sheet. Nor can it be too many things. Then you can narrow the list. Imagine that your child tells you that he likes to watch TV, play games, eat dinner, and tell him a story.
3. Well, now it's in your hands shorten the list and give it a logical order. It could well be the following: Watch TV a little or play, bathe, have dinner, brush your teeth, listen to a story and sleep.
4. Explain to your child that now You will need to create the routine table on cardboard. You can do this by drawing or cutting pictures and pasting them according to the established order: first a child watching television, then a child having dinner, then a child brushing his teeth ...
5. Place the cardboard with the routine table in a conspicuous place in your room. Remind him to follow these steps every day.
