She’s Teaching You How To Get Your Child To Leave The Playground Without Putting Up A Fuss

So once the time is up, Ali-Marie gives her kids a ten-second warning that lets them know they need to start heading to the car. Or she might let them do one more quick activity before leaving.

Her last tip is to make going back to the car sound appealing. Turn it into a competitive game, like whoever reaches the car first wins.

You can also emphasize how fun the car is by suggesting some music your kids might want to listen to.

“Ultimately, if your child felt connected and empowered at the playground and then know that they have something exciting to look forward to while they’re leaving, that is going to make the transition much smoother,” concluded Ali-Marie.
