“Cooperation is the ability to balance one’s own needs with someone else’s.” We round out the school year with an article from Zero-to-Three entitled Tips on Helping Your Child Learn to Cooperate. This resource gives concrete examples of “how cooperativeness grows across the first three years of life” and offers tips on a variety of situations, such as:
- Taking turns,
- Setting limits and explaining requests,
- Taking time to problem-solve,
- Suggesting developmentally-appropriate chores,
- Praising cooperation, and
- Giving choices.
It’s well worth the read. Check it out today and leave us a comment to let us know what you thought.
