Motivating Future Behavior: Natural and Logical Consequences

Motivating Future Behavior: Natural and Logical Consequences

Finding consequences that help your children change their behavior is a difficult task for parents, and remaining calm while delivering those consequences is often even more challenging.

Sometimes allowing natural consequences to occur, rather than providing logical or other consequences for your children’s actions, can help create a calmer living environment, and more importantly, can teach your children to change their behaviors in more effective ways.

In this download, you will find information on:

• The difference between logical vs. natural consequences

• Examples of each kind of consequence

• Planning consequences that address your child’s specific problem behavior

• Allowing consequences to unfold naturally is more effective in showing your children the impact of their behavior, and also lets you take a break from playing the “mean parent” responsible for imposing negative consequences and punishment.
