It is important to be consistent. If you tell them you’re going to do something, you need to do it. For example, if you say that if they don’t clean their room they don’t get dessert, then you better follow through and not give them dessert, no matter how much they cry, scream, or pout. As soon as you forget what you said, you’ve made it that much harder the next time because they’ll remember that you didn’t follow through before, so maybe you won’t this time either.
Until next time, God bless,
