Kids’ Backchat & Rudeness

In this month’s ‘Maggie moment’, one of Australia’s favourite parenting authors Maggie Dent discusses strategies for handling it when children backchat or are rude. Maggie urges parents to look at what’s underneath this behaviour and what factors might be contributing. She then looks at ways to reteach them and guide them rather than simply punishing them for their rudeness. Maggie talks about micro moments of connection or ‘love bridges’.. you can watch her Maggie Moment on that topic here
