How to React When Your Children Talk Back

Nov 02, 2023 / General     

When your kids talk back, the last thing you want to do is engage in a verbal tug of war. Instead, it’s best to have wise words prepared for some of the most common ways that kids talk back. For example, when your child says, “That’s not fair,” respond with, “Being fair doesn’t mean treating you the same way I treat others. Let’s do what’s right for you and everyone involved.” When your kids say, “Everyone else gets to do it,” you can reply, “What other parents choose to let their kids do is not always right for us. We will make our own decisions based on what’s best for you and our family.” For more on how to use wise words, listen to this Family First podcast. Remember, your Family First.
