Sweets for the sweet

Fun with food

During your study on gentleness, reward your children’s spontaneous gentleness with small treats. Double the reward if they responded well when provoked.

Goal: Practice gentleness.

To celebrate what your child has learned about gentleness in speech, surprise your children with small candies or other sweet treats when they speak gently. Double the reward if they have responded with gentleness to harsh words or someone’s negative attitude.
