In this video, Abby’s mom explains that she needs some quiet time in order to focus on her important project. When Abby feels disappointed, they come up with a creative solution: each day, after their work is done, they’ll make a craft together.

  • Before watching: Invite your family to share any special projects or important tasks they’re working on. Ask, “What helps you stay focused on your task? How can other family members help?”
  • While you watch: Notice how Abby’s mom stays focused, and how their creative plan helps Abby wait patiently for her mom to finish working.
  • After watching: Together with your child, make a list of things you enjoy doing together. Then schedule time to do a “together” activity each day.
