Ask your child to listen to your words and do what you say, instead of following what you do. Say, “Stomp your fee” while you clap your hands. They should stomp their feet and try not to focus on the clapping. Try new words and new actions when they learn to do this. Take turns!

Your child has to focus carefully on what you say and use self-control to not be distracted by what you do. It’s hard, but playing this game helps children develop life skills that they’ll use now and in the future.
