5 Tips for Effective Limit Setting

  1. The purpose of setting limits is to teach, not to punish
  2. You cannot force someone to behave in a specific way
  3. Be clear, think simply, and offer a positive choice first
  4. See the situation from the others point of view before offering setting limits
  5. Limit Setting IS offering choices with consequences. Limit Setting is NOT making threats and giving ultimatums
