I’ve taught my children, 2 and 4, to say “excuse me, Mommy,” if they need to talk to me when I am talking to someone else. They do, but they do it all the time, so basically, they are still interrupting. What do I do?
You respond, saying “Yes, Aiden?” listen to his query, answer it, and then say, “I’m talking to Mrs. Farrington right now, so if you can, please wait a few minutes if you need to talk to me again.” They’ll eventually learn a little patience. Congratulations on teaching them such good manners!
