How Do I Get My Kids to Listen the First Time?

How do I get my kids to listen the first time

How do you get your kids to listen right away?

Can they really do what you need them to do the first time you ask?

If you have ever heard: “What’d you say, Mom?” or “I didn’t hear you tell me to do that,” then this episode is a must-watch.

Remember, your kids will listen the first time if you stop what you are doing, look them in the eyes, smile, say their name, and give them one direction.


How do you recruit help to get the job done right away with good attitudes? How do you speak once and leave the “I’ve told you a 100 times already!” behind?! Read More…

There is a better way than just shouting at your kids. Read More…

I can’t wait to hear from you. Share in the comments below how you get your kids to listen the first time.

We are in this @ Home with the KIDS thing together so share as much detail as possible.  So many amazing moms, dads, grandparents, and teachers come here for help and hope.  We want to learn from each other.  Your words may help someone else have an “ah ha!” moment.

Important: Share your thoughts and ideas directly in the comments. Links to other posts, videos, etc. will be deleted as they come across as spammy.

If you’ve spent any time around Speak Life Badges and me, you know I take a strong stand for kindness. Please write and respond to each other in that spirit.

Remember, to stay intentional because your kids need you.  They want YOU!  You are consistent and faithful.  You are enough.  Keep going.

All my love,


What’s Good
