Verbalizing

Posted by Tracy Wainwright at 2:07 PM
The second aspect is verbalizing. Some parents have this technique down very well. As a matter of fact, some have it down so well that their child doesn’t hear them anymore. When children are very young (toddlers, preschoolers) information needs to be repeated. Parents often feel like broken records (a reference our children won’t even get) during this time of parenting. During this phase of parenting parents need to repeat rules again and again because of the developmental capabilities of a child to understand and remember them from day to day (and sometimes minute to minute.) As or children mature they need less repetition. They won’t let you know this, however. They’ll let you say something as many times as you will without actually making them follow through. By the time they are five, however, most children pretty much know what the rules are. They know things like washing their hands after going potty, brushing their teeth before bed, to not hit, to not snatch, and to not interrupt an adult conversation. They may need reminded every once in a while, but they pretty much know the rules.
