Since my people skills are strong, some kids will ask me the reason for the rule that I am enforcing. Generally, I have the patience and the time to briefly describe why.
Young children are the best students because they will always ask questions. For some, simply telling them it’s wrong isn’t enough for them to stop, especially if they don’t understand why the activity is unsafe. Communication is often the key to keeping safety a priority.
Take the time to tell young people the why for the rules.
