How to Motivate Your Child

Dec 05, 2023 / General     

Most kids have to be told more than once to do things. They have to be constantly reminded over and over to clean their room, be nice to their siblings, or finish their homework.  After all of this, it’s no wonder parents are exhausted!  This problem that all parents face is the problem of motivating their children. But with the help of Dr. Scott Turansky, this problem can be solved. So to motivate our kids, Dr. Turansky first recommends we create consequences that are designed to motivate our children when they make mistakes. Second, we must transform our child’s guilt into self-motivation that encourages them to be wiser next time. To hear my full, exclusive interview with Dr. Turansky, listen to this Family First podcast.
