20 Positive Things To Say To Encourage Your Child
Can I Show You Another Way To Do It?
I've taught my daughter over and over how to brush her teeth so she can get the back ones, and many times, she won't do it. Instead of saying “You should know how to do this!” like I want to because I'm tired and just want to get her in bed so I can relax, I've started saying, "Can I show you another way?" That way, it's not a challenge, and it keeps me calm as well when I'm met with an enthusiastic "Yes!" Because she's not meaning to be annoying. She's a toddler. And they like repetition. And one day she will be a pro at brushing her teeth.
