comment How can I stop repeating myself?
Careful with the praise. As mentioned, make it specific and also make it an intrinsic consequence not "thank you for meeting my needs by being a good little boy". I have seen kids immediately misbehave after that sort of "reward". It can seem manipulative to them. Instead illuminate how their good behavior has natural consequences "great, you've got your shoes on, we can go now, no waiting."
