Positive Discipline Tool Card - Distract & Redirect

Instead of saying, “Don’t”, redirect to a, “Do.”

1) Remove your child from the TV knobs and redirect by saying, “You can play with the blocks.”
2) Distract by becoming the tickle monster.
3) Take your child by the hand and lead him or her to another activity.
4) Give your child a timer so he can tell you when it is time to leave the park.

Does anyone have ideas of how to use this card with older children? I'm sure it would still be a helpful card, but I'm looking for some examples!
