It’s time to leave the park, but your kid isn’t ready.
You’re already running late for dinner, but he’s having a great time. You don’t want to end on a bad note, do you?
So you agree to give him a few more minutes. Then you sweetly let him know it’s really time to go.
He drags his feet. He pouts. You feel the tension building up.
You did everything right. You gave advance warning, you talked positively. What now? How are you supposed to set limits without yelling or caving in?
