Parenting Issues 101: How to fix your children's bad behavior and have a great relationship with your children.
Use authoritative body posture and voice, (e.g. eye contacts, keep her eye level) and state "Your child name, Do + Now, Please." (Eg. Sara, pick up your clothes, now please.) Stick with it until she gets your points.
Once family routines are established, your life become more calm and peaceful. Continue to increase positive encounters with your child, and less focus on negative behavior. If negative behavior shows up, keep using the warning techniques.
Start allowing her to do what she can do, give her freedom and responsibility.
5. Check up
Always check with your behavior and languages so that your child does not model the negative behavior and languages. Also check with your feelings and physiological responses.
"Are you mad at children?"
"Is your discipline fair?"
"Is your discipline coming from anger?"
"Is your discipline coming out of logic?"
