Telling your kids to be better, do better, and get more motivated may not make them want to be better, do better, or be more motivated.

If your child tends to do the opposite of what you’re trying to get them to do, try telling them what you already love about them, what you appreciate about what they’re doing now, and talk about their dreams and hopes.
