How Can I Get My Child to Listen to Me?

Bite-sized brain snacks for Chicago’s early learners.


Your child will be more likely to listen to you when you walk over to them, get their attention, and make eye contact before giving a command. Use an assertive voice to say what to do rather that what not to do. Remember that young children process information twelve times slower than adults. Be patient and be clear! You've got this!
