So weve identified that every new skill that we learn requires a step-by-step approach. Youll notice that even coloring in can be broken down in smaller steps in terms of the stages of the development of this type of skill. A child will begin by simple learning how to pick up and hold a crayon or colored pencil. Then they will learn how to apply the color onto the paper. Youll notice that your child goes over the lines of the outlined drawing at first but dont worry, this is only natural. Your child will soon learn how to color within the outlined areas. You should encourage your child to select different colors for different parts of the drawing.
The vast majority of families take at least one vacation a year which usually involves traveling to a foreign city and seeing the sights of the downtown area. Yet there are challenges in traveling with young children which can result in added stress for the parents. A stay in a Toronto hotel alone while on business is a completely different experience from that of staying at a downtown hotel with two young children. Often by simply doing some research ahead of time, these stresses can be eliminated altogether.
The lines of your coloring page are the rules you need to share with your team, share with them the boundaries. They are more likely to stay with in the lines if they know that they exist. Next by holding the work up for group and team acceptance they become their own self policing force. They can set self expectations and make constructive self criticism as well. The reward is acceptance and recognition from the team, an old saying is that a person can starve without any feedback, but only needs one good compliment to be filled to overflowing.
