Here you will learn about the underlying reasons behind children’s refusals and conflicts. You will discover that children’s refusals are not simply acts of defiance. They stem from a genuine need for autonomy. Refusals and conflicts often arise from children’s natural longing for independence. This happens within the parent-child relationship, but also with other authority figures such as grandparents, teachers, and caregivers. If you respect children’s need for autonomy, you will see that your child will cooperate.
For example, consider assigning age-appropriate chores or tasks that empower your child and enable them to contribute to the family. By respecting their capabilities and providing them with a sense of autonomy, they are more likely to cooperate and take pride in their responsibilities. Also, instead of telling your child what to wear, offer them a choice between two outfits. By respecting their autonomy and allowing them to make decisions within limits, they are more likely to cooperate and feel a sense of ownership over their choice.
This free program sheds light on the underlying motives behind these refusals. You will find out how children grow and develop and also gain insights into the 3 fundamental psychological needs and their impact on cooperation. Unveil the secrets behind satisfying these needs – autonomy, competence, and relatedness. By nurturing these needs, you’ll experience a remarkable shift in how your child listens to your guidance and respects your requests. Then, you can set expectations that are appropriate for your child’s age. As a result, this will help you recognize the difference between normal independence and behavior that needs to be addressed.
The way parents raise their children has a big impact on how they behave and how they respond to authority. In our program, we focus a lot on teaching an authoritative parenting style. This means being warm, responsive to children, and setting clear expectations in a balanced way. Research has shown that an authoritative parenting style has positive effects on their children. Children raised by an authoritarian parent tend to have more self-confidence. As a result, they make wiser decisions, and believe in themselves (Firouzkouhi Moghaddam et al., 2017). Self-confidence is important because it helps children feel good about themselves, which leads to better overall development.

Here you will learn that it’s healthy to establish boundaries. For example, we will teach you specific techniques to set screen time limits and establish consistent bedtime routines. Additionally, you’ll gain insights on guiding children to understand consequences. For instance, if a family rule is repeatedly broken, consequences like limited screen time or restricted activity participation can be implemented. This program helps parents set limits that are appropriate for their age and abilities. The program also shows parents how to explain these rules in a way that children understand.
Between the ages of 6 and 8, children begin to develop a conscience and a sense of rules and fairness (Hardecker et al., 2017). Before reaching this stage, kids learn about rules by seeing how consistent their parents are in enforcing them.
This programme encourages parents to embrace the power of natural and logical consequences. Natural consequences occur as a direct result of a child’s actions. Natural consequences provide invaluable learning opportunities. For instance, if a child refuses to wear a coat, they may experience being cold. Similarly, if they insist on wearing uncomfortable shoes for appearance’s, their feet may hurt.
On the other hand, logical consequences are when parents or caregivers make a connection between what a child does and what happens as a result. For example, if a child forgets to lock their bike and it gets stolen, some parents might choose to punish. That’s because they may focus on the cost of the bike. Others find it more helpful to let the child face the logical consequence of losing their bike. This helps the child learn responsibility and think about their actions, rather than being punished. Research shows that effective discipline focuses on promoting self-control rather than just punishment. In the long term, punishment is not effective (American Psychological Association, 2001).
