Today, make an effort to tell your child the plan. If they’re young or distractable, it may help to draw stick figures to show the plan. #empower
Kids spend a LOT of time at the mercy of other people’s plans. This is why it’s empowering to them to let them in on the plan. (Imagine spending most of your day not knowing what’s coming next and constantly having to stop what you’re doing to go along with someone else.)
Especially for kids who are anxious, introverted or crave steadiness, just being able to think forward to what’s going to happen during the day can give them more of a sense of calm. Likewise, for these kids it’s helpful to warn about a change in plans as early as possible.
