Giving Choices

with | October 7, 2019

You see what I did there? I gave you a choice. And, that's a good way to train children. Beginning as early as you can give them choices and let them experience the blessing or difficulties of that choice. "Would you rather clean your room or pay your sister with your allowance to do it for you?" "Would you rather help cook dinner or help clean up?" Helping with dinner is a given, but how the child helps is up to them. Giving choices invites cooperation and trains kids to think for themselves.
