Setting clear boundaries and expectations help children to feel safe and secure. It is important to set limits, because these are real borders that surround and delimit a space in which the child can grow, explore, benefit from freedom and permission. Respect is mutual: No punishments, spankings, “naughty chairs,” sticker charts or bribes to get the child to do the right thing! Your helper will understand and learn to: Be firm, not Harsh Differentiate between what the child wants and what he needs; Be ready to welcome the emotion that may arise from a refusal; Give instructions rather than prohibit; Give information, explanations, descriptions rather than judgments; Suggest alternatives to the child; Avoid paradoxical injunctions; Do not change the rules impulsively or without good reason; Explain in quiet moments what the consequences of a certain behaviour will be; Avoid 'empty threats', which are often impulsive, incoherent or unrealistic, but refer to the framework defined with the child. Be consistent.
