Parenting Hints – How to Set High Expectations

Parents should set expectations. As Steinberg says, “A good parent has high expectations. But he explains those expectations in a language that a child can understand.” When setting expectations, parents should listen to what their children say. Doing so helps the child feel as if he’s a part of the decision-making process. And, they should be consistent in their expectations. The following are several suggestions for parents to set high expectations with their children.

A child’s environment is a big part of his or her development. A well-rounded environment promotes socialization and cooperation. Positive parenting protects children from a wide range of negative and anti-social behavior. Good parenting fosters empathy, self-control, and a desire to achieve. These qualities, while not impossible to achieve, can be learned and developed. Good parenting can also prevent children from developing anxiety, eating disorders, anti-social behavior, and alcohol and drug abuse.

Having a special guest may make your child uncomfortable. Having a child who doesn’t know anyone can be intimidating, so give them a special job to help. For example, your child can show the guests where everything is located. You can also assign them special jobs, such as giving tours of the house. They can even draw name tags and placemats for guests. They can even make a special birthday hat to give to guests.

Set clear expectations and follow through on them. The consequences should be fair, and should be realistic. Don’t threaten your child with punishment, but reward good behavior instead. Children will eventually grow up to be independent adults, capable of making their own decisions. If you are constantly punishing your child for misbehaving, you’re only sabotaging their development. Instead of punishing them, reframe their behavior and view them as little people lacking the tools they need to make good decisions.
