According to Amanda, “Young children often have trouble processing multiple steps of instructions given all at once.” So when it seems like your child isn’t following what you say, step back and think about what you said.
Did you give one direction after another without taking a breath? Limit yourself to giving only one or two instructions at a time in a slow and clear manner, then ask your children to repeat what you said to make sure they understood you.
Ever wonder why your child is so seemingly stubborn and refuses to listen to you? Probably because you've committed THESE parenting mistakes!
