First, ask yourself how you respond to your child's highly judgmental attitude. Could your response be stoking his negativity?
Typical parental responses that provoke a judgmental attitude in kids often end in "-ing": insulting, judging, criticizing, scolding, humiliating, threatening, and yelling. If any of these fit your parenting style, how will you change your response?
Think of the last time your kid displayed his negative ways toward you. How did the episode begin? What did your kid say or do? What did you do? How did this episode end? Did any of those "-ing" parental responses enter into your interaction with your kid? Even one small change can make a big difference.Write one thing you will never do when your kid flaunts his negativity.
