Talk About It!

Talk with your child next time they get it right!

Talking with your child -- is a brain builder.  Use words that your child can understand to teach your child why a behavior was not acceptable.  When your child is 3 years or older, you can discuss what went wrong and ask for suggestion about how he/she could do it differently next time.

Children need practice making choices and experiencing the natural consequences of their choices.  Create safe opportunities for your child to practice making choices such as which book he wants to read or if she want to take her bath before or after reading a story.
