John got to help me order pizza.
We wrote the sentences he would say, and we practiced.
The word “medium” was difficult. By the next day, John had mastered the word.
But for the phone call, we eventually went with “middle size”.
The lady taking the phone order was very kind.
I told her we were working on a social project.
John got a C+ and we will do better next time.
John also gets practice with business transactions by checking himself in for therapy.
And handling the credit card work at checkout: Both at therapy and at restaurants.
And, he volunteered to run a letter to the mailbox.
Grinning all the way there and back.
So, think of little ways you can delegate to your children, including buying gas for the car.
We parents do too much on automatic pilot.
I hope this helps at your house.
Peace be with us,
