I ran into a great quote today…
Any kid will run any errand for you if you ask at bedtime.
— Red Skelton
Boy, isn’t that the truth?! Every parent of a 7 year old will recognize that to be true!
And it got me thinking, of course, on how the key to motivating kids (or people in general) lies mostly in the timing. And the timing depends upon their interests and not necessarily our own.
So what’re we going to do right now about the timing of our next project, our next meeting, our next event? How are we going to use clever timing to our advantage in order to help motivate and move our charges beyond their regular habits?
