There is nothing that despairs parents more than a rebellious child who does not want to change his behavior: who hits other children, who constantly disobeys ... However, we do have a very useful tool (although few know it): 'the sandwich technique', a technique that is not based on punishments, but in the power of praise. Surprising!

The sandwich technique is based in achieving change through constructive criticism. Before sending a negative message to the child, you should soften that moment with a praise and end with a positive message. The psychologist Elia Roca explains that to achieve this, we must respect these 3 steps:

1. A sincere compliment. Before launching the request for a behavior change at the child, you should start with a short, sincere compliment that the child can understand. For example: 'You already know that I love you very much' 'You have wonderful qualities ...'

2. Request for behavior change. After the praise, it is time: you must raise the need for him to change his behavior. To do this, wait a few seconds after you launched the compliment and add a 'but' ... 'You know that I love you very much, but ...' Then send your wish that you want and need him to change his behavior: ' You know that I love you a lot, but ... I need you to change and stop hitting other children ... 'After sending your request, you must explain why:' I need you to change and stop hitting other children because when you do, you hurt them '... And then you tell him what you need him to do:' I would like you to stop doing that from now on '...

3. Appreciation. You always have to end with a positive message, that's why, after asking for a change in behavior, you should end up thanking something, using 'although' for it: 'Although I would appreciate it very much if you tell me whenever you feel angry.'

Definitely, a positive technique, which reinforces the child's self-esteem, makes him feel important, encourages him to make decisions and gives him responsibility for his actions.
