Asalam o Alaikum,
Four or five days ago I came up with a technique which can be used to persuade your kids to do the right things you want them to do.
I took inspiration from video games. Lol! I thought that if virtual rewards can engage humans to such an extent then why not apply this technique and use it productively.
My 3 year old was not eating his food and an idea struck to my mind. I said that if you will finish this food, you will be rewarded 10 marks. He immediately finished his food. Similarly his 7 year old sibling was not doing something and I persuaded her to do by rewarding her with marks.
So far this technique is working and I have advised my wife to use this technique to persuade instead of shouting. I keep using this technique on daily basis so that it is hard wired in their psyche. I also intend to print a Certificate of son of the week and daughter of the week each week to encourage good behavior and discourage bad behavior.
I also intend to plan out privileges associated with score and a way of recording the score. It can be recorded in a digital device like mobile or offline in a small diary or maybe, I may come to a better idea. So far I have found that at least in my situation it is highly effective.What are your techniques of doing tarbiyah and teaching good manners to your kids? What do you do?
