What If You Could Tell A Story With Your Kids Breakfast?

Why force food down a child when you can motivate them to eat by telling a story

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day but at the same time, it’s the meal with little to no time for preparation.

I know how mornings can be. A rush-hour especially the days when you wake up pretty late and the kids decide to fall back to sleep when you wake them.

So a quick breakfast fix becomes either what you prepare for lunch for them later that day or tea rush or corn flakes.

But not all kids like to have golden mourn or tea, so then indomie may be an answer for an easy escape or you force down the food through his mouth.

When then is the time to tell a story with your child’s breakfast.

The world is busy, you are busy and the time isn’t even friendly. I know this. But what if, just what if you can tell a story with your child’s breakfast once a week.

First to see how he or she receives it if it works or not and then to see if it becomes part of a breakfast schedule.

How do you tell this story?

Simple.

(See the cover photo).

You can create smiley faces with your fruits on your pancakes and just spare a minute to play with them.

The following conversation may occur;

You: Hey baby, eat the smiley face let’s see how it would still look

Or

You: Baby girl, how do you think he would look like if you eat his legs

Child: How mummy?

You: Eat it and let’s find out baby

You: (Shock) Now he has no legs. I think it will be difficult to walk with no legs and his stomach looks heavy for him.

Child: what can we do?

You: Why don’t you eat the stomach and relief him, dear.

******

This conversation can play out in whichever direction, just make it fun.

Most children are chatty, they just need you to push that button in them, and you can do that with their weakpoint- STORYTELLING

And by storytelling, you can do that with their love for cartoons.
