Try these options:

  • Which toy to play with.
  • which fruit to eat for a snack.
  • Which book to read before going to bed.
  • Which picture they want to color.
Ask if they:
  • Want to walk or sit on the cart while shopping.
  • Want to put their art on the fridge door or on the wall.
  • Want cereal or oatmeal for breakfast.
Help the child feel empowered and satisfied with the ability to choose. Give a few options (2 or 3) so he/she does not feel overwhelmed and frustrated.
