Social-Emotional Growth – Part 2

This piece is so powerful!

Whenever you can and have time, offer kids a choice (2 is usually best). This helps give them a sense of control over their environment and it makes those times when they don’t have a choice a little bit easier.

This also helps them become used to making decisions for themselves. When in the classroom or playing with a friend, they need to be able to make a choice and keep going! It is also good for them to stick to that choice until there is a natural time for them to make a new choice. Follow through is a great lesson to learn.
