EXTENSION NEWS: Helping children understand time

(Continued)

Warn children of any changes in your routine before they are going to happen. “Tonight we are going to have dinner at grandma’s after school, and there won’t be time to play when you get home. It will be time for your bath and story and then bed.”

By letting your child know what the new routine is you help build their flexibility. Children are much more accepting of changes they know are coming.
