POURQUOI TON ENFANT REFUSE DE FAIRE CE QUE TU LUI DEMANDES ?

WHY DOES YOUR CHILD REFUSE TO DO WHAT YOU ASK THEM?

If your child resists, not to every request you make of him, but only to certain specific requests (taking a bath, going to sleep, etc.), it is surely because he has a deeper fear.

FOLLOW THESE STEPS TO UNBLOCK IT:

⭐️Ask him the question:

Do you want to explain to me why you still refuse to do that? Do you feel capable of doing it? If not why?

⭐️Encourage him and remind him of a moment of success:

I am sure you can do it!
Remember the other time when you overcame your fear. You really thought you couldn't do it, and in the end you did.

⭐️Suggest that they start with a small step:

I understand, you don't want to sleep because you're afraid of having nightmares. So, do you think we could just go to the bedroom to start?

💡THE PRO TIP💡

Don't hesitate to make your child responsible as much as possible, even at a very young age. The more you encourage him to do things alone from a very young age (wash his plate, make his bed, brush his teeth alone...) the more his brain will be trained to act, and the less his resistance will be strong.

💡THE SECOND PRO TIP💡

For slightly thankless tasks that he doesn't want to do, use a timer. It will only do the task as long as it rings. This will allow him to visualize the end of his ordeal!
