Many parents have this complain that their kids never listen to them. Be it toddlers or the grown up ones, listening to instructions is a tough task for them and these kids take delight in turning a deaf ear to their parents.
If go by the words of child experts, kids tend to neglect the instructions given to them by parents because of the mode of communication.
Yes, this may surprise you a bit but your way of communication with kids has a great impact on how they respond back to you.
Mostly, parents use three modes of communication with kids. The first one happens to be the aggressive tone; parents who use this mode believe in yelling and shouting at kids. They think that it’s the only way of making kids listen and follow the instructions as given.
Second comes the passive mode, wherein parents act overly sweet with their tone and when they fail to get the desired response from kids, they often turn to aggression mode.
The third one happens to be the most important and in fact, the most sensible one. It’s the assertive way of communication. This mode stands to be firm, reliable, understandable positive, affectionate and convincing. The child is persuaded to listen to his parents and understand the instructions as given. If you want your child to listen to you then you’ll have to bring necessary changes in your mode of communication.
