Wher to chat about adult spanking
So rather than telling kids they have to wait until you’re done talking, create a plan to show your child appropriate ways he can get your attention.
If you’re in the middle of an adult conversation, and he wants to ask for permission to go outside, what should he do?
There will certainly be times when you’ll need to interrupt your child.
Use each incident as an opportunity to role model how to do so respectfully.
They may be completely oblivious to the fact that asking you a question while you’re talking to someone else is rude.
They may require some education and coaching to help them learn to avoid interrupting when others are talking.
Your first reaction may be to want to tell the parents not to spank. Parents tend to use the same methods of child rearing that were used for them when they were growing up.Teaching kids not to interrupt other people’s conversations is an important social skill.Children who understand how to politely enter into a conversation—instead of talking over people—will likely be more successful in developing and maintaining relationships.Provide a gentle reminder such as, “You are interrupting our conversation and that’s rude.
I will answer your question in a minute when it’s your turn.” If your child continues to interrupt after a warning, ignoring may be the most effective response. Time-out is another option if he continues to interrupt repeatedly.
Providing positive attention to good behavior can prevent him from interrupting.
