Dr. Kobman’s Positive Behavior Support Tip of the Week
Is your child being disrespectful?
Many times we forget that children need to be taught respect. Rude behavior, talking back, and foul language are common. As parents, we must teach our children how to be respectful. One way is for parents to catch disrespect early. If a child is behaving rudely, his/her parent should intervene and remind their son or daughter that “we don’t talk that way to each other.” Modeling pro-social and respectful behavior gives children the opportunity to see what respect looks like and learn to interact with others.
