Birth – Age 2: Young children often use their bodies to get attention by crying, hitting, poking, scratching and grabbing. When these times arise, it’s an opportunity to teach them about self-control. Use phrases like, “Use your words,” “What do you need?” and “Let’s share.”
Age 3 – Kindergarten: Playing a card or board game is a great way to practice self-control! Play one with your child this week and encourage self-control by helping everyone take turns and be good sports. When the game is finished, have everyone give high fives and say “good game”!
