"When [my young daughter] is being impatient or persistent about doing something: at this age, how would I teach her to be patient?"
When listener Sherif asked this question recently, I knew it had to be part of the Common Parenting Challenges series!
Sherif asks some really pertinent follow-up questions:
– Is that possible at this age?
– Should I just distract her with something else?
– Should I stand my ground which will make her upset?
– If I give in to what she wants, is this teaching her how to always get her way?
