Reply to I have an 8 year old daughter. Who doesn’t listen well.

Well from what I read it’s normal for children to not listen during that age. I went through it too. Now that my daughter is 10 she is a lot better at completing tasks. You have to first make sure they know how to do the task. Do it with them . And then also need to discipline. If they don’t want to do the chore take away their favorite thing and don’t feel bad and next time she will know you aren’t playing games. She has a tantrum because she knows she can get away with it. I wouldn’t let add be an excuse not to listen . Work with her the first few times with the chore . Show her how it’s done. Teach her, explain to her. Also have patience . I promise it will get better if you work with her. But you have to take the time to do that. And reward when deserved. Also I have add and what really helps for when you guys are cleaning or organizing play smooth jazz, classical music or piano music. It really distracts the side of the brain that likes to distract you from the task at hand. It’s calming and helps me to focus. I also have my daughter listen to it during homework as well.
