Cause & Effect

What do a light switch, bubbles, science experiments, bad grades, and having babies all share in common? They are all good examples of cause and effect - the basic idea that one things leads to another. Parents are lucky because most of the world provides clear feedback naturally, about how one's behaviors lead to specific results, and different behaviors next time can lead to different results. In most situations, it is fine, and easier, to let the natural world and resulting consequences teach your child, without speeches or nagging or any false rewards such as stickers or grades. If you resist the urge to intervene and shield your children from learning naturally when they are young, your parenting role will be much easier as they get older!
