Giving Children Choices Part Three
When I was raising my two boys, I was learning about giving choices. One winter's day, we took a walk in Washington Crossing State Park. It was here I decided to practice my new skill.
"OK, guys, we can take this trail or that trail. What's your choice?"
"Do you want to rest now, or shall we keep going?"
"I have a snack; do you want an orange or an apple?"
Sometimes they would ask me to do something.
"Can we go explore that area?"
"Can we sit on the stone wall?"
