I’m Dr. Jeff Gardere, “America’s Psychologist,” on how to get your kids to break the bad habit of talking back to you, the parent. Okay, let’s be honest: No parent likes to hear back talk from their kids, even if those kids are now adults. So, with that in mind, here are a few simple to keep your kids from back talking to you. First and foremost, don’t overreact. No matter how annoying your child is, it’s important that you stay calm, and not go over the top. Secondly, disengage, especially if it’s turned into an argument. You’re not going to get anywhere by trying to talk over one another. Therefore, postpone or stop, breathe, and walk away from the argument. When you and your kids are more composed, then come back to the table and discuss the issue again. Finally, encourage and teach respectful conversation. When your child talks back, you can repeat what it is that they’re saying, but give it a reinterpretation in a more appropriate verbalization and affect. Modeling the talk will help them follow more respectful talk in the future. I’m psychologist Dr. Jeff Gardere, with some tips on how to get your kids to break the bad habit of talking back to you, the parent.
