How To Get Your Kids to Listen
If your child is doing something that you would like them to stop you say, "That's 1".
If the behavior continues you say, "That's 2."
If you get to 3 they get a 5 minute time out without toys or electronics.
The most important rules for parents to remember are there is no other talking/discussing/explaining and after the time out the child gets a fresh start.
