Taking turns

Waiting for your turn before talking or acting

Taking turns is important in collaborative work and this skill should teach the child to look around when it’s his/her turn to talk, think about what he/she will say or do, wait to make sure no one else is talking and finish what he/she is saying/doing before it’s someone else’s turn.

Your brother is watching a TV show and you want to watch a different show.

Be patient, don’t interrupt your brother and wait until they have finished. Once they have finished ask nicely if you can watch your show now that their show has finished.
