There is a difference between giving a clear instruction and providing clear direction.
Often we are in situations where we need to address an issue or correct a behaviour by providing some direction. It’s not that the child is in trouble … there is no immediate problem or major expression of unacceptable behaviour. Sometimes it’s just that they have strayed from the task at hand.
If a clear instruction is needed, see Tool#13.
A process of providing some direction helps a child take responsibility for choices to get back on track before the situation escalates.
