Have you ever wondered, is my child ignoring me or are they not understanding what I’m saying? If so, this post is for you!
The brilliant Laura Mize recommends this gem of a strategy to help children follow directions, regardless of the reason they’re having trouble.
⭐️First, TELL your child: “Get your shoes.”
⭐️Then, SHOW your child: Point to the shoes + say “Get your shoes.”
⭐️Last, HELP your child: Guide your child’s hands to pick up the shoes + say “Get your shoes.”
Notice how we start with the least amount of help and only add more assistance as needed. Try this strategy out and let me know how it goes!
