Being patient

Good things come to those who wait: delay of gratification, turn taking and building endurance

Being patient is important for collaboration when it’s not all about one child and the child has to learn to wait his/her turn etc. The child can think of strategies to learn how to be patient such as finding something else to do in the meantime.

Your mum is finishing cleaning the house but you want to go to see the movies now

Be patient when things don’t work out the way you want. Try and find a distraction to help you wait or even offer to help your mum to speed things up.
