Hello fellow parents. I am stumped! Once again, not the last time either. dizzy.gif


My 5 year old pretty much talks non stop. I almost feel as if it has become habit rather useful discussion. They say no question is a bad question but what about the same thing over and over, non stop chit chat and questions.


I do say to him you already asked me that, what did I say? He can usually repeat my answer but later he will ask it again. I feel like my head is going to pop off. He has always been curious but now I see it is affecting friendships in the classroom. He talks to his friends non stop. Eventually, they are saying he can't play with them. I think it is because it  annoys them, or is that my emotion I am putting on them. I don't know?


Any ideas on productive ways to get him to practice silence and listening skills. There are times I have said :stop talking, just stop talking. Trust me I don't like it when I do it but geeeez if feels like the only way to stop the non stop chat. I have become a good 'ah huh, ah huh, ah huh' mom but that is not helping him.


Thank you.

I used the "Let's play a game and see which of us can stay quiet the longest..." game. LOL My youngest was almost 16 when she realized that it wasn't really a "game"...
