So if there are certain disciplinary tactics that you want to teach them, for example not wearing shoes over the carpet, washing ones hands before a meal, not borrowing others' things without taking permission etc. , give them live examples. Like if they don't wash their hands before a meal tell them why it is important, what would happen if they didn't do it, the infections they would get and the like in vocabulary that a child will understand. This will help them remember better. And the next time they forget, calmly explain it to them again. When They Don't ListenKids are smart. Sometimes they might see that they are getting away with things and then continue to do it. That is your true test of mettle. Do not scream, yell or hit them, it's not gonna work. Try raising your voice a little and firmly telling them. If you've never done this before, they'll know you mean business.
