Saying “Okay?” to toddlers is asking for their permission…which can be difficult to get! @Babsybbooks
Welcome to this month’s featured post from Babsy B founder, Babs Bell Hajdusiewicz! This latest topic discusses parenting “doubletalk” and how to better communicate with those indignant toddlers! As parents, we all want our children to be assertive, strong-willed, and confident…unless it’s in response to us?!
Being aware of how I communicate; the words I choose to use and the tone they are delivered in, is definitely something I have been working on with my kids. Instead of asking them for permission to do something by adding on “okay?” at the end of my instruction, I’ve learned to employ some of Babsy B’s suggestions…and have had much more success!
