When I am telling my children to do smth, or not to do, I have to repeat it many times.
I have to raise my voice, but I hate to scream. Or when I tell my son to do smth, he would repeat after me with making faces. Or when I tell them to stop saying words that he does not supposed to say, he would repeat them. I was trying to use “block system”. It works temporary, but next day everything starts over again. He is 7 years old, I have 4 years old daughter so of course she starts to repeat his behavior. I am just very frustrated.
