As we have mentioned before it is often the case that bad behavior gets a lot more attention than good behavior. Ignoring mild misbehavior is an OK rule for parents to follow – it shows your child that their bad behavior won’t get a reaction, which means he’ll be less likely to repeat that behavior in the future.

However some behaviors should not be ignored, these include:

  • Throwing tantrums
  • Interrupting
  • Selective hearing
  • Playing too rough
  • Having a bad attitude -such as rolling their eyes at you.

Ignoring is usually most effective for annoying behaviors like whining, crying when nothing is physically wrong or hurting, and tantrums. These are often done for attention. If your child is not getting attention, the behaviors will stop (eventually!)
