Your child can show co-operation by:

  • playing and working peacefully with others in the family
  • listening to adults and being respectful of their requests
  • working with others to complete a task and/or achieve a goal
  • helping to find a compromise when there are family disagreements

Encouraging co-operation in your child:

  • Praise your child when he or she is co-operative.
  • Help your child become aware of his or her own co-operative or unco-operative behaviour.
  • Share your own experiences of co-operative/unco-operative behaviour and how it affected a goal.
