If you want to see improvement in your children's behavior, there is a very important thing you must do, without fail. This is to keep your children with you throughout the day. Keeping your children with you allows you to notice all the things they are doing or saying which are sinful or undesirable. After you witness them doing or saying something they shouldn't, you can immediately correct them, instructing them in the right way.
Also, don't forget to look for the good things they do! Children love to hear praise from their parents when they are doing something correctly, so be sure to take notice of what they are doing right (Susie kindly shared her dolly with Sarah, etc.), and let them know it was good.
Never correct them in anger. Remain calm and pleasant, but instruct with firmness and confidence, leading them in the right path. Give them lots of smiles, hugs, and kisses when they are doing right and you are enjoying your time together.
