How do I show my kids how to behave?

Don't Lecture

Sometimes, to get the message across, we find ourselves lecturing to our children. However, lecturing is not a good way to interact in the family environment. When you lecture, you are setting up a situation where the children are more likely to rebel, feeling like they are living in an inflexible institution. In getting the message across, communication is the key. Ask them questions as well as offering advice. Tell them what you don't like about the situation, Advise them of the rules. But, at all times, try to avoid lecturing.
