GETTING CHILDREN TO LISTEN

How many times a day do you have to repeat the same instruction?

Getting children to listen and respond to commands is not easy.  When you give a command do you present it as a question? 

**"Would you mind picking up your toys for me?" is not as effective as, "."Time to pick up your toys"

**Don't send directions from another room.  Eye contact is very effective.

**And try  not to give too many requests at once.  "Pick up your toys and put them in the toy box," is more simply understood.

**Above all be patient and consistent

I don't know if this works, but I ran across this tip just the other day.  It is supposed to work:

A dollop of vaseline
1/4 - 1/2 tsp. sugar

Smoothe over cleaned cuts.  Sugar is a natural healer.
