so the other night i got sick of the kids arguing over everything... especially over who goes FIRST!
so i got paper and pen and we started with 'In our family... '
together we wrote a list. Little Z got so in to this.. he LOVED it!
here is the list we came up with. let me know if you have any you think we should add.
In Our Family we..
let other people go first (Little M responded to this one with "No ME!")
share with each other
love cake (Little M's contribution)
play with toys gently
say kind things to each other
take deep breaths when we feel cross
don't grab, hit, shove, push, scratch, bite
play with each other nicely and don't do things that are rough
say encouraging things, nice things
say please and thank you
do good things, don't do bad things
listen to each other
read books together
do things that are really good and dont make people sad
go on trips together
compliment each other (you look lovely in that. you're really good at that)
do what Mummy & Daddy say
use nice voices (no screaming)
say what we are feeling
are allowed to make mistakes
we definitely dont microwave our soft toys
