Telling kids what they should do, as opposed to what they shouldn't be doing, brings a positive reflection on their behavior very quickly. For instance, use words like this to teach your children.... "use your walking feet." instead of "Don't run." "Use your indoor voices." Instead of "Stop screaming" and "Keep your feet on the floor." instead of "Don't climb on the couch." "Sit on the chair." instead of "Don't stand on the chair." "Run your truck on the floor." instead of "Don't run your truck on the table." The best rules tell children what they should do , rather then what they shouldn't do.
