Increase Your Assertiveness

An assertive parent is a confident parent who has belief in their own abilities and will earn the respect of their child:

  • Use an authoritative tone of voice to rein in your child's bad behavior.
  • Use body language to emphasize praise.
  • Use facial expressions to emphasize what you are feeling.
  • Take steps to build your confidence if your self-esteem is low.
  • Get help to manage your anger if you fear you could lose control.
