Tired of dealing with snatching and grabbing toys from each other? Teach your children to get attention from one another differently. Implement a “Tap and Say Please” policy. This can be accomplished with siblings who don’t have language by showing them the motions.
- Tap your sibling on the shoulder.
- Turn your hand over to show an open hand.
- Practice, practice, practice during playtime.
Children learn new skills best during playtime so that they can access the new tools they have practiced in similar situations.
