Maintaining open communication between parents and children is key to forming strong bonds, so reasoning with older kids is a good place to start.  Sometimes removal of privileges can help, as can placing children or favorite toys in time out.  Positive reinforcement is also a great way to strengthen the bond between parent and child.  Establishing healthy boundaries is a lifelong process and is necessary for your kids to learn expectations.  Learn more about your parenting options from this infographic.
