Hard truth. Often, our children only get our attention when they're misbehaving.
We're tired and stressed and sometimes just over parenting, so when our children are quiet and engaging in play, we tend to leave them to it. Then suddenly they're misbehaving and we're all up in their grill giving them allllll of the attention. Before you know it, you've only connected with your children to tell them off, give them directions, wrestle them into the routine and feed them. The result is that kids learn to misbehave in order to get our attention - they you get stuck in a rut.
You can turn it around easily tomorrow. When your child is misbehaving, notice it, try to ignore it, then use it as a reminder that your child needs some praise and reaction for good behaviour. The second they do something good, give them a high five. Join in with their play. Have fun with them. This will retrain their brain and repair your relation ship tenfold.
