“How you get your Preschooler to listen to you the first time?” Is a question I’m definitely not worthy of receiving, yet I get often. Here’s my answer:
𝐅𝐢𝐫𝐬𝐭: I make the conditions favorable for good listening by keeping him well fed & well rested. (𝘐𝘮𝘱𝘰𝘳𝘵𝘢𝘯𝘵)
𝐒𝐞𝐜𝐨𝐧𝐝: I make eye contact when asking him things, and if he seems distracted I ask him to tell me what I asked him. Hearing it from his mouth is like signing a contract.
𝐓𝐡𝐢𝐫𝐝: He always gets a 10, 5 and 2 minute warning before leaving anywhere he’s having fun! It helps.
𝐋𝐚𝐬𝐭𝐥𝐲, saying “𝘐’𝘮 𝘩𝘶𝘯𝘨𝘳𝘺, 𝘐 𝘸𝘢𝘯𝘵 𝘵𝘰 𝘨𝘰 𝘦𝘢𝘵 𝘴𝘰𝘮𝘦𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘺𝘶𝘮𝘮𝘺 𝘢𝘵 𝘩𝘰𝘮𝘦” makes even leaving the park a delicious idea😁. #foodlovingkids #thatsmyboy
