Seize Teachable Moments, Don’t Lecture
Tip on how to help children change behavior
“A teachable moment is an unplanned opportunity that arises where an adult has an ideal chance to offer insight to a child. ”
Instead of lecturing or nagging your children, take advantage of teachable moments whenever you sense you have one. Lecturing and nagging tunes out children and hence you become ineffective. Whereas seizing teachable moments “tunes YOU” into your children’s world, making them feel important.
Respond to the questions they ask, model good behavior, or point out good characters in stories, movies, and especially as seen by you and your child together in real life.
