Give credit where it’s due
Make sure you recognise those moments when your child shares beautifully or says something nice about a sibling or friend. If you don’t want to ruin the moment when they’re actually playing together, make time at the end of the day to tell your little one that you noticed their actions. Positive feedback makes it more likely they’ll do the same again!
Pro-tip: Reviewing the day at bedtime also gives you an opportunity to talk over what didn’t go so well, and go over what they could do differently next time.
