Boost Patience for your child! A Developmental Story that teaches patience.
The best way to teach patience is to practice patience. Easier said than done, right?
The truth is that some people are naturally more patient than others. While some people seem to breeze through stressful events and long waits, others have difficulty in the same situations.
For some people, learning to be patient requires more practice and, well, patience! Children are no different. All children have different temperaments, and some children are naturally less patient than others.
This story features farmer Growfield, he teaches the value and upside of planting—an activity that requires patience: One of the downsides of the technological lifestyle is the focus on instant gratification. Choose projects and activities that require time and patience, such as planting, mosaics (with paper), and pottery, and slower-moving games like Yahtzee Jr., Chutes & Ladders, and checkers. Planting projects are great because they learn to care for the seeds and learn patience. They have to show great diligence to help those seeds grow!
It is a good idea to have your child listen to this story 7 times in row every night at the same time. Another anchor you can create to cement in the story is to ask your child to draw a picture of Supa Bunnee and the words “Patience”and place the picture by their bed. The story needs to live in the child’s mind in order to build awareness around this important and necessary step in childhood development.
