Kirsten Berger calls herself “the Mom Coach.” When Kirsten’s kids had a nasty habit of always interrupting their parents’ conversations, she wanted to develop a way to get the children to be patient while she was busy talking to someone else. Her solution is simple, when her kids want her attention, they are trained to place their hands on their mom’s shoulder. When Kirsten feels the touch of her kids, she places her hand on top of theirs to acknowledge she notices them and will speak to them shortly. And then, Kirsten can politely excuse herself from the conversation and speak with her kids.
If you ever experience the challenge of getting your child to stop interrupting, this is certainly worth trying.
