Kid Tip Tuesday – Teachable Moments

If you always try to sit your kids down to teach them something, you’ll be both exhausted and unsuccessful.

Instead, take advantage of the routine you already have in place and associate learning with those times. For instance, write a Bible verse on your child’s mirror with a dry erase pen and go over it while they brush their teeth in the morning. Or you can put new words (in English or another language) on the refrigerator and refer to them before you get their morning drinks or pull out their lunch for school. Use car time as a time to recite songs, rhymes or even multiplication tables.

If nothing else, use these “routine” times to remind yourself to listen to what your kids have to say. When you stop trying to constantly teach your children something to stop and listen, you’d be surprised at how much you can learn!
