My child is a young school-aged kid, soooo… it will be different depending on the age group, and on how many kids

  1. Have a talk before the meeting - letting them know it’s important, and I need quiet
  2. Have some activities they need to complete during the meeting
  3. Bring out a special toy or treat that will keep them busy - either something new, or something I hid from them, so they haven’t played with for a while
  4. Give rewards for good behavior after the meeting (because there will always be more meetings)
  5. When all else fails bring out the iPad (particularly powerful if there are restrictions on screentime)
