Below is a reliable predictor of both parent and child behaviors in the cycle of non-compliance. Both the parent and the child are training each other to repeat this cycle every time the parent wants the child to do something that he or she doesn’t particularly want to do. The end result is tantrums, violence, regret, guilt, shame, and an overall ruined day or week. If you’d like help breaking out of this cycle, give me a call. I know lots of ways out of this mess.
