You can choose! - Elsa Support for emotional literacy

You can choose!

This idea came from talking to a parent and advising her to give her child choices. It can really help with behaviour if the child feels they have some control. If you are asking them to do something and it causes conflict then try giving them a choice BUT both choices are acceptable to you. For example ‘Would you like carrots or peas on your dinner?’ – you want them to have some veg. ‘Would you like to sort out the books or tidy the lego?’ – you want them to tidy up. This strategy works really well quite a bit of the time providing you practice it. This game will help your child understand about choices. It is a simple throwing of a die to find the choices. They literally choose one. They might like to explain why they made that choice but the aim of the game is simply to understand that they can choose between two things. Not a right or a wrong answer just their choice.

"Debbie goes above and beyond to help with any resource we need. I particularly love the ‘Express Yourself’ booklet. The kids love it! It’s a good conversation starter, especially when I print one for myself and we draw by sharing experiences together. Love it! Dona Jones - SEN/SEMH Teaching Assistant and ELSA (primary)"
