Behaviour management

It's so hard to figure out how to make people want to cooperate so that we can achieve the things they want to achieve. But I'm getting better at it.

Getting L out of bed and out of the house with no time to spare - no time to get absorbed in something - is key. Bringing her water and food and helping her get dressed helps a lot. It's impossible to get to her before she starts reading, so gradually interrupting that until she's out the door works well.

Then she takes off at a run.

She revealed to me on Saturday that she likes being early for her swimming lesson. She zoomed there on her scooter, swam, played while her sister was in the next lesson, then we spent 45 minutes in the playground, so she was almost able to sit still at lunchtime...
