It’s not uncommon for children to change their minds or lose interest in activities. Here are a few things you can try to help your child engage:
Set clear expectations: Explain what the activity will involve and what is expected of your child.
Make it fun: Encourage your child to approach the activity with a positive attitude, and find ways to make it more enjoyable for them.
Provide positive reinforcement: Praise your child for their efforts, no matter how small, and reward them for their participation.
Be patient: Children may need time to adjust to new activities. Give them space to explore and make mistakes.
Adapt the activity: If your child is not engaged, consider adjusting the activity to better fit their needs or interests.
Consult with a professional: If your child consistently has difficulty engaging in activities, it may be a sign of a more serious issue. Consider speaking with a pediatrician or a child psychologist for guidance.
