Flip the Script
If you have an inflexible child who’s used to doing things in a certain order and/or has a hard time seeing alternative ways of doing things, try flipping the script on him for practice. For example:
- Ask him to change the order in which he prepares his cereal (pour the milk before adding the cereal or vice versa).
- Change the rules of a game (make the lower hand win in a game of War or go backwards in Monopoly).
- Have your child map out a different route home from school.
