There are a few strategies you can try to get your child to listen to you more:

Set clear and consistent rules and boundaries for your child. This will help them understand what is expected of them.

Speak in a calm and assertive tone. Children are more likely to listen when they sense that you are in control of the situation.

Use positive reinforcement, such as praising your child when they do listen and follow directions.

Give your child a sense of ownership and responsibility by involving them in decision-making and problem-solving.

Establish a regular routine and schedule for your child. This can help them feel more secure and in control.

Be a good role model by actively listening to them when they speak and showing them how to listen.

Show empathy for your child’s feelings and point of view. Try to understand where they are coming from and what might be motivating their behavior.

Avoid power struggles and instead work on finding solutions together.

Remember, every child is different, and what works for one child may not work for another. Be patient and try different strategies until you find what works best for your child.
