If you’d like to build your preschooler’s life skills, make sure that you don’t forget to teach them to look both ways.
WHY PRESCHOOLERS SHOULD LOOK BOTH WAYS
It is common for preschoolers to be impulsive. When we help them work on strengthening their impulse control though, they are better able to listen and make appropriate decisions. This is not only important for learning, but also for their safety.
Teaching your child about pedestrian safety is important for their well being, and is best done through play and meaningful conversations. Playing games that help build listening skills teaches them that they can control their bodies. Of course, modeling looking both ways when crossing the street is very beneficial, too.
