Teaching Children Patience (2)

Teaching Children Patience (2)

Lk 8:15    “Bring forth fruit with patience.”

Here are five more teaching tips: (1) Teach by experiment. Toddlers through tweens can appreciate the time it takes a plant to grow, so involve them in planting a seed and watching it grow. Explain how everything in life takes time to change and develop. Teach the meaning of Ecc 3:1 NKJV: “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.” (2) Make use of visuals. Younger children especially need visuals when waiting for an event to happen. If it’s 4:30 and dinner is at 5:00, use a timer. If it’s eighteen days until the family trip to Disney World, let them mark the days off on a calendar. Often their problem with waiting is not knowing when it will end. (3) Don’t interrupt and don’t tolerate interruptions. Toddlers to teens—kids interrupt! Adults, too. Interruptions are usually a rude and frustrating display of impatience. Unless it’s an emergency, be clear: Kids—and adults—are to wait their turn to speak. It’s more than good manners—it’s obeying God’s Word. “There is…a time to keep silence, and a time to speak” (vv. 1, 7 NKJV). (4) Make use of board games. Most board games require taking turns, which means waiting. Your kids will hardly realize they’re practicing patience! Chess and checkers are good for tweens. Scrabble educates teenagers and teaches them patience. (5) Reward their patience. When your toddler waits for his sippy cup to be filled while you feed the baby, thank him for waiting so well. If your teen saves her money to buy an iPad, compliment her wisdom and reinforce it by perhaps donating the last few dollars to her purchase.

I am really loving the theme/design of your web site.
Do you ever run into any internet browser compatibility issues?
A small number of my blog readers have complained about
my site not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Safari.

Do you have any advice to help fix this issue?

Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I
could add to my blog that automatically tweet my
newest twitter updates. I've been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like
this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to
your new updates.

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though
you relied on the video to make your point. You clearly know what youre talking about, why throw
away your intelligence on just posting videos to your weblog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
