Cause and Effect

April 23, 2009

We’ve been working with the Big One on the concept of cause and effect. In addition to trying to win the food battle we are working on her little attitude-ness. So we were talking about how different behaviors result in different consequences.

We talked about not listening resulting in time-out. We talked about being polite and getting what you want. Well, she thought it was a great game. So we continued for about 20 minutes making up a “cause” and having her tell us the “effect.”

The Husband and I were running out of ideas, so I asked her what happens when mommy has a headache. I figured she’d say something about taking medicine. Instead she thought a second and then proudly announced, “We go to Starbucks for coffee!”

Smart kid, that Big One.
