Plan Ahead, Minimize Meltdowns
When heading out, have your preschooler pack a bag with items they would like to take with them.
Also, take the time to talk with them ahead of time about where you will be going.
Decision making with packing a bag helps them gain responsibility and the conversation helps them prepare for what's to come.
Remember, your PRESCHOOLER packs the bag, not you. Have them take ownership in the packing.
Some ideas for your bag are:
- allergy free snacks (for the sake of others around you)
