How to Get Your Child to Listen

As parents, we can get incredibly frustrated when our children do not listen to us. A three-year-old might continue crashing toy cars while his sister naps, an eight-year-old might not get dressed soon enough to make it to school on time, or your 13-year-old might not put the trash out.
