The Lancer Answer: Modeling is our greatest influence upon our children. The better you listen to your child and around your child the better of a listener your child will be. We teach our kids to NOT listen by paying too little attention to them, to the point that we overlook their non-verbal cues and fail to hear them when they speak softly and politely.

Bob Lancer's Expert Answers
The Lancer Answer: CALMLY AND CONSCIOUSLY. The moment you begin to feel frustrated, you set yourself up for a combative response from your child. Pay close attention to what happens as you direct your child. If you don't like the results, instead of blaming the child for not cooperating, calmly and confidently step back and consider what your child needs right now and how you can contribute to that outcome.
