Children are often “professional dawdlers,” – taking forever to complete simple tasks. Some jobs are more fun if you set a timer or play a favorite song and see how much you can get done before it’s over. ”Let’s see how many legos we can get in the box in 3 minutes!” (You’d be surprised!) Set a stop watch on your phone to see how fast they can get dressed. Once a task becomes fun, the power struggle is over and you eventually won’t need a timer.
