When you’re waiting at a stoplight, bus stop, or train platform, make up a story together about someone across the street or on the opposite platform. Where is the woman in the hat going? What will she do when she gets there? Try to elaborate on your child’s ideas.
See what your child is learning
When you’re telling stories, have your child think about how the character in the story might think and feel. This will help them learn how to see other people’s point of view. It’s a valuable skill that we all use everyday, adults and children!
