Successful habits create positive results!

Written by Renee Lighton on Tuesday, 30 April 2013. Posted in Blog

Having spent the past 10 years facilitating workshops for parents and teachers, there is one truth I am sure of. Successful habits do create positive results. Our children are not born with toothbrushes and toothpaste in their hands! We however, value this successful habit as we know it will create positive results. We persevere, some us  having to persevere and encourage more than others, to get our darlings, to brush their teeth twice a day for two minutes a day! Sometimes it can take up to 5 years or even longer, to make sure that this habit is carried out daily, as part of a routine. We would not consider giving up. We encourage. We assist. We make it fun. We know that it is important for our child to master this successful habit. We understand that good breath and white healthy teeth will lead to positive result. The benefits of spending time on this activity, far out ways the drawbacks of time spent and continually encouraging.

Let’s apply this principal  of  successful  habits to other  areas of our own and our child’s life. How many successful habits do you have? How are you setting your child up for success? Which successful habits are you encouraging?

Here are two habits that will help your child:

Make sure that when your child sits at the dining room table that his/ her feet are grounded. This will help their posture and your child will be able to focus on the task at hand. Use the training toilet step, old telephone directories, newspapers even an old box, to get the right height.

When using a Koki, make sure your child places the lid on the back of the Koki or on the table in front of them. Do not let them hold the lid in the other hand. Awareness can then be fully on the activity. Trust me, this does make a difference!

I look forward to receiving your emails  on which successful habits are creating positive results in your and or your child’s life. See www.reneelighton.co.za for workshops and email me on info@reneelighton.co.za to share your ideas.
