The First Days

Start a Negative Comment Countdown Plan by keeping track of every critical comment family members make around the house each day.You may be surprised at just how many put-downs, sarcastic or cynical slams, or judgmental statements are uttered on a regular basis. Then for the next twenty-one days, everyone must commit to reducing their negative messages. At first, each time anyone says a critical comment, he or she has to say a positive one. Slowly the ratio of negative to positive comments will start to change. Ideally, set a goal that by the end of the twenty-one days, everyone says at least two positive comments for every negative one.You may be surprised how this strategy alone changes your family dynamics and may dramatically decrease your kid's judgmental attitude.
