Ok so here it goes blog post no.1
Putting together a routine and rules! Kids thrive off routine it’s really important to instil routine into their daily lives.
At a young age children have little or no understanding of actual time so saying five minutes or half an hour to a four year old won’t really benefit them, try using a sand timer or countdown timer try one of these I use them in school with the kids.
It’s also super helpful for the kids to be involved with planning their timetable it gives them a sense of ownership rather than a set of rules that will basically ruin their free time at home!
When making this timetable ensure the kids are working towards an end goal or reward (this can either be daily or at the end of the week). It doesn’t have to be pricey. So maybe they have to earn a star each day and then on Friday if they get all five stars they get a special treat… chicken n chips take away/ or a trip to the local sweet shop/park – or whatever they like (provided we aren’t in lockdown)
