Before After
Preparations Attention
Prepare your child for what is going to happen. Increase attention and encouragement when it works!
Choose an appropriate time for the activity.
Reach a joint agreement with your child on what tasks they will have.
Give your child time to perform their tasks.
Positive encouragement
Tell your child what they should do, not what they should stop doing. For example: ‘Come sit here beside me’ instead of ‘Stop running around’.
Establish routines – do things the same way every time.
Positive expectations
Show that you believe your child is capable!
