I remember when I was training as a figure skater and every single time I had a coaching session, I was reminded many times, “Keep your weight on the ball of your foot.” The coach didn’t get frustrated that she had to repeat this every single time she met with me. She didn’t feel the need to punish me when I didn’t conform to perfect technique. It’s probably the same as being reminded to bend your knees when skiing or to change hand positioning when golfing or playing tennis.
In a similar way, you may need to say every day, multiple times to your child, “Talk in your normal voice” when he is whining or “Talk it through” when he starts to act out his anger.
