I Had To Be Taught These Things?
Activity: We may think that interacting online should come naturally, but there’s actually a lot to learn! Show your tween that even the most basic skills that they take for granted are things they had to learn.
Pick something your child does really well (like brushing their teeth or putting on their socks). Come up with a list of each step it takes to complete that task.
For example, if you picked putting on socks, the steps might start off with: first, you choose a pair of socks (are you wearing sneakers or dress shoes? Make sure you pick the socks that fit the shoe!) Now you need to find a place to sit (it’s hard to put socks on while balancing on one foot!). You and your child can take it from here.
