Reaching Expectations

When I work with parents who are frustrated with their children’s behaviors, I show them how their expectations are unclear, inconsistent, and they have not established consequences for when their children don’t meet those expectations. Often, parents can’t even agree on what the expectations should be, so the kids are left to guess what the expectations are. Even when parents can agree what expectations they want the children to meet, they have poor follow-through with consequences as neither parent wants to be the disciplinarian.
