Teaching your child to cooperate

It's so hard to get your children to do that things that they don't want to do, but I think it's all about communication. If you respect your child and respect their feelings, sometimes they have a really good reason for not wanting to do what you are asking them to do. If it's a safety issue, it's not up to them. It's your job to protect them. If you just acknowledge how they are feeling and talk it out. It fosters great communication between the two of you, and a great relationship.
