This is encouragement to not make threats you’re unwilling to follow through on. Saying, “If you have a messy room, I’m not buying you any more toys or clothes (Guilty!)” is not an honest threat. “You’re grounded forever,” probably won’t happen either. Be willing to choose reasonable consequences you will follow through on, and your child will believe you and behavior you desire will fall in line more quickly.
