Stop and Start behaviors

There are two kinds of behaviors,  "stop" behaviors (when your child is doing something wrong) and "start" behaviors (when your child isn’t doing what you want him or her to do).

It’s easier for a child to start doing something than to stop doing something, so try to spin your corrections accordingly: Instead of saying, "Don’t do that" or "Stop bothering your brother," say, "Put that down" or "Come here".
