Hey Ladies, I have always wondered whats the right method of making kids understand you and agree with you so that they follow your instructions. Has anyone mastered the art of convincing kids? I easily resort to blackmailing my kid and distracting my kid. Is there anyone who never resorts to blackmailing? When I say blackmailing it also means bribing. For example: Saying the kid- If you eat this banana, I will let you out to play. Or if you go and sleep now, I will give you a chocolate when you wake up, or I will take you to the park, etc. I also want to know what are the consequences of this method of parenting. What are the best ways for avoiding blackmailing/bribing. How to make the kids agree with you without fights in a amicable manner.
