Make sure your child understands what their behavioral expectations are to help them learn their limits. Telling him/her "5 minutes" before the game must be put away will later translate to "You only have 5 minutes to finish your work." When giving directions on how to set the table for a holiday meal, have your child repeat the directions back to you so that you know he/she understand. When we provide "loving limits" for our children they will have life successes. Remember to discipline gently, reinforce good behavior and set limits.
