Don't Interrupt !!
Do you ever find your kids interrupting you when you are having a conversation with someone else? Are you tired of telling them that they need to wait?
I had the same problem. I solved my problem by teaching them to put their hand on my hand when they wanted my attention and then to wait.
When they would fall back into trying to verbally interrupt me, I'd remind them “That won’t work.” They soon learned that the only thing that did work was to put their hand on my hand and wait their turn. They were rewarded with my full attention when it was their turn.
This really worked for me. Now they know how to get my attention and m always there 24/7 to give mine, it's just they should learn and understand and put it into practise as to how to get attention without interrupting.
