I am a mother of a 3-year-old boy and I am having trouble teaching him the concept of waiting for his turn. He gets frustrated and throws tantrums when he has to wait for anything, whether it's waiting for his turn on the swing, waiting for his food to be served, or waiting for me to finish talking on the phone. It's becoming a challenge for me to manage his behavior and I am worried that this may affect his ability to socialize and develop healthy relationships with other children.
I have tried various strategies such as distracting him with a toy or book, engaging him in conversation and explaining the concept of waiting, but nothing seems to work. I am looking for some helpful tips on how to encourage my toddler to be more patient and enjoy waiting for his turn. Any advice or personal experiences are greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance!
