Teach your toddler how to ask for something by…
Providing an opportunity to do so! 😉
Here’s one way to slightly change the environment and create an opportunity to teach them to ask for assistance:
⭐️Give them a desired object in a container with a tight lid (that you know they cannot open without help)
Then wait to see what they do 👀
They will likely hand it to you for help and ✨this is your opportunity✨ to model language of what you would expect them to say, such as “help!”
I teach this technique and SO MUCH more in my upcoming live program Talkative Toddlers! 🥳💥💯
Let me know in the comments if you’ll be trying this with your little one!
