Scripts are one of my favorite parenting tools. Did you know that when a child is upset her ability to process language is greatly reduced? Scripts are short, concise, and easily understood phrases. You can use them to move a child toward optimal behavior through play and nurture.
Because a script is easy to understand, you don’t have to come up with all of the right words to say. In the same way, your child will become familiar with the simple phrase and understand its meaning. This helps them feel safe and builds trust.
I hope you enjoy this short video lesson and the printable posters. The posters will be helpful as you begin using scripts to build trust and connection with your children.
