Maybe I can actually do this. And not feel like so much of a failure on all the other points. Heh.

This works great for me....and I can even say it before they do it to encourage them to do it. Like, I say "Thank you so much for being a good listener and sitting in that chair while we wait for the doctor." ANd (sometimes) they smile and sit!! Or "thanks for sharing" and then they do!

I think that we all need a reminder to catch our kids being good though, since we are constantly telling them what not to do. Being specific is a challenge too, not just a blanket "good job." I hope this will be an easy one for all parents.
