When DD was younger and not responding to my safety requests (or other requests that were kinda important) I stopped using my voice to try to change her behavior and would go up to her, touch her arm, and then explain/ tell her what to do instead. If she continued to refuse to follow my request I was in a position to physically prompt her. I think if I had gotten into a pattern of calling out to her what she needs to stop and she did it anyway without further intervention, today she would simply not listen. No reason to. My words wouldn't mean anything. That would bother me a lot; that she gave no credibility to my words. I would feel disrespected and devalued..
