Pick & Choose

Ask your child to help you choose which items to buy. You can ask questions like, "What color shampoo bottle should we get—yellow or purple?" Just make sure the choices you offer are ones you can live with! Ask them why they made their choice. For example, "Why is purple better than yellow?" Talk with them about the choices that you would make.
