Show courtesy to family members in public and at home.
Expect more conflict over boundaries as kids go through transition stages, such as beginning to walk, first going to school, entering puberty, or becoming more independent during the high-school years.
Be consistent with the boundaries you set and what you do when they’re violated. Kids are quick to pick up on rules that you don’t enforce.
Notice and comment when your child does something well. Be specific.
Let your child earn more freedoms as he or she shows more responsibility.
