I feel like I'm always in here asking about problems! I swear Rache is as good little guy most of the time, lol!
Anyways, we are having some major troubles with Rache being patient. Not surprising, being three...but I was wondering what y'all do to help your LOs learn patience? I feel like being three, Rache should understand a bit more about waiting for something, but then again, maybe not??
So, like today, we were in his room playing. I decided to clean a up a bit rather than play, and he, of course, doesn't like this. And so it begins: "Mommy, read this to me." "Okay, just let me finish putting away these clothes." No more than 3 seconds later.... "Mommy, read this." "Okay...just wait." No more than 5 second later..... "Mommy, READ THIS!"
All day, he was like this. I tried telling him that he does have to ask twice if I say yes, that I will do what he wants / needs after I finish what I was doing. I tried talking to him about being patient, what that means, etc. (And, of course that he also needs to be saying please...but, then again, if he says please, and I don't immediately do what he asks, he always says, "I said PLEASE!." It almost makes him more impatient since he asked 'right.' )
Am I expecting too much? Should he understand about waiting? Any tips? Help! (as always!)
