I have parents often ask what at the tools to get my child to listen and do what I ask. There is no one size fits all answer, and there is a level of complexity depending on the dynamics of your family. With the right tools, parents can improve the listening in their children and also build other healthy habits. One of these ways is through role modelling, as you have a lot of power as a parent in your actions, similar to the expression your actions speak louder than words. What you say is still important as we need to verbally communicate with our children, and it is important as a parent to set limits. However, when our words align with our actions we have the greatest influence with our children. Find below some ways to start implementing the power of role modelling.

I have been working with parents for over 10 years. I have learned a great deal from them as well as from parenting my own children. It has taught me that parenting is the most trying job there is, requires the support of a village, and with the right supports can be truly rewarding.
