- It might seem inconsequential to ask a child whether he wants to drink half glass of milk or a full glass, he wants to study or play, he wants to go with us or not, like many examples we have. But each of this small choice represents one more opportunity to have control over his own life. There is so much a child must do that its not hard to understand why sometimes he becomes resentful and unmannered.
If we give them a choice about how something is to be done, very often the choice is that would reduce his resentment.
But some parents don’t agree about using this skill .They claim that a forced choice isn’t much of a choice at all and becomes just another way to box a child in.
