Targeting inappropriate behaviors with PRIDE skills.

Targeting inappropriate behaviors with PRIDE skills.

This is done by “catching” your child doing something good that is opposite of an inappropriate behavior.

For instance, want your child to stop running ahead at the grocery store? Praise him for staying next to you.

When you compliment your child for displaying a good behavior, it helps him learn what to do rather than what not to do, and increases the likelihood he’ll repeat that good behavior.

Let your child lead the way.

Let your child lead the way.

Since children rarely have the opportunity to be in charge, letting your child lead can make playtime feel extra special.

Here are two ways to follow your child’s lead:

  • Go with the flow by letting your child choose what you play with and how you play (as long as it’s safe).
  • Reduce commands and questions such as, “Say choo choo!” and, “What will his name be?”

A Final Note.

A Final Note.

  • Do what feels right for your family.

You know your child best, so use the skills in a way that feels right. It’s all about encouraging values and behaviors that are personally important to you.

  • Give yourself praise.

Parenting can be hard so remember to go easy on yourself. Showing yourself love is important just as you’d show your child love. Give yourself praise from time-to-time for doing your best.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
