We tend to be a loud and rambunctious family anyways, but there are times that my oldest especially struggles to use an appropriate voice level, even though we’ve been working on that for years. So I created a little Voice Volume Visual chart that I can direct her attention to, when I’m asking her to become a little bit more quiet. She understands the volume on the TV, radio or the computer and so I fashioned it after that. 10 is way too loud, or an “outside voice”. Five is “just right”. Zero is “voice off”.
The toilet has been an area of contention for us. Not just the typical “he won’t put the seat down”, but our girls frequently “forget” to wipe, or flush or wash their hands. So I decided, instead of nagging about this, I created this very simple little visual reminder of the things that they need to do when they get off the potty.
These can be used whether your kiddos have been housebound because of the weather or whether your kiddos just have difficulty calming back down after rambunctious play. This is a list of 10 activities that you can do to help your child calm. Each idea has a short description and information to help you implement it.
