TEACH YOUR CHILD

Jan Ferguson (the mother of two teen boys as well as the Small Business Manager for Microsoft) shared a tip with me. One of her boys wanted to buy a special soccer ball. He asked her, ‘Mum, will you phone around to find it?’ Jan said to me, ‘My first reaction was to snap at him and tell him to do it himself. But I stopped and mentally put myself in his shoes. I realised this might be a task he had never had to do before – research and telephone for something. So instead I explained what had to be done. Then we both did it together.’

This is a great way to prevent an argument and teach a lesson at the same time.
