Sharing and taking turns is a learned process that only develops when children can start empathizing with others. These skills take a tremendous amount of self-control. We model self-control for the Friendly Frogs as they see you patiently wait to play the triangle. We can also help the children wait by touching them gently or showing them how to pretend to play the triangle before it is their turn. This helps them find their own strategies for waiting. Learning these skills helps the Friendly Frogs when we celebrate and acknowledge all the tiny achievements along the way. Observe your child when he is with friends and classmates. Watch for opportunities to affirm his efforts, saying something like: “You are so polite to wait while Nancy takes a turn.”
