Phrases such as, "I need space," or "I'm still using that," can be common parlance at a daycare center, where harmonious group play is top priority. Melissa Lin Perella, a Santa Monica, Calif. mother of two, says these verbal tools have helped at home, too. “These key phrases are reiterated and enforced all day long at daycare,” she says. “They help my children respect other kids’ space and how to clearly communicate when they need their own.”
What to do: Take advantage of the tools your child is learning at daycare and reinforce them at home. You can also share with teachers what works at home. Consistency is your greatest weapon!
