Teach Your Kids To Stop Interrupting You With This Technique

Kids are impatient little buggers who don't realise they're being rude when they interrupt you while you're having a conversation. Here's an easy technique that will teach children a better way to get your attention. Mum coach Kirsten explains the four steps in the video above.

  1. Teach your child to place his or her hand on you when they want to speak to you while you're talking to someone else.
  2. Put your hand on top of theirs to acknowledge they want your attention.
  3. Politely excuse yourself from the conversation.
  4. Thank your kid for waiting and give him or her your full attention.

You might need to practise this a few times to establish it as a new good habit, but if you're tired of always saying "wait a minute" or "I'm talking over here", it's definitely worth a try.
