Procedure Coaching

Something that might help is to think of your kids' behaviors the same way an athletic coach does and to get your kids thinking about themselves as team mates who have to accomplish a task to "win." When you ask them to do something, stop them as soon as you see a mistake in the procedure. Smile and laugh about it, but have them start over. Challenge them to see if they can do their clean-up or their going-home transition more efficiently than they did the day before or the time before. Use expressions like, "That was pretty good. I think we can be great, though. What do you think?" Bonus: you can record their times in a spread sheet and use it for a math activity (if that's applicable). At their core, kids want to please the important people in their lives. Good luck!
