Choose the right language to help inspire patience

Let your tinybean know what to expect and make it easier for them to wait for things by using “first, then” sentences.
For instance, you might say:

“First we’ll change your diaper. Then we’ll go outside to play.”

“First I’ll sweep the kitchen floor. Then we’ll have a snack.”

“First we’ll put the crayons away. Then we’ll get out the blocks.”

“First, then” statements are a great way to acknowledge that you’ve heard what your little one wants, establish that there is an order to things and to communicate what you expect of them.
