Wishing You Well

Young children, still developing a sense of their own autonomy, often need to assert themselves when they hear an adult command. Instead of giving an assertive command, try offering children two positive choices! 

By offering children two positive choices, you help them do the following:

1. Attend to the task you deem important

2. Comply with your wishes

3. Learn decision-making skills

4. Feel empowered, thereby reducing power struggles

5. Redirect their behavior and learn impulse control 

6. Establish and maintain self control
