The most magical words in parenting – “next time”

The most magical words in parenting – “Next time…”

These are my most favourite words to ever ever use, and teach in parenting! They allow you to correct a child’s behaviour without telling them they’re wrong, and they are ridiculously simple to remember and use!

These words work at the subconscious level of the child’s mind, and massively increase the chances that they don’t repeat a particular behaviour again.

Next time you need to correct your child for any reason, use “next time”.

You’ll feel like a better parent or teacher, you’ll get the behaviour you want, and your child’s self-esteem is kept totally in tact, making it feel safe for them to make mistakes and take responsibility for correcting themselves.

Enjoy, and Stay Amazing!
