Aim: Good Choices
Our Target: We’re focusing on helping our kids learn what a good decision is and how to always make those good choices. Since nobody is perfect, we also want to look at how to help our kids take responsibility for their actions and do the right thing even after they make a mistake
Team Up! Try these simple tips to help your child want to talk.
Grab an egg or a spoonful of mayo from the kitchen and go to where your child is in the house. Show them what you have, and ask them if they think it would be a good idea if you decided to drop that on the floor. They should say “no” so ask them why it would not be a good idea. Tell your child that it would not be a good idea because of the mess it would make and how much work it would take to clean up. Now that you have their attention, it’s time to talk to your child about how to look ahead to see what will happen before making choices.
