Waiting is like the kiss of death for strong-willed children. They want what they want, when they want it. Most times, they have trouble with impulse control. They hate waiting because they feel like they’re missing something. This may be the reason they skip their peers’ turns in games or jump to the head of the line during school transitions.

Getting these children to pause and be considerate of others can be quite the feat. Depending on how stubborn you child is, it could take a while before your child is able to master their impatience. You can help by practicing the act of waiting during a board game or using a timer to see who can wait the longest. There are endless ways to practice any skill – if you’re creative.
