We all want our kids to be obedient, but getting there can be a long journey and sometimes it feels like we’ll never arrive! Preschoolers are learning and growing every day and obedience is a skill that takes time to master.


Here’s a fun way to reinforce obedience at home.

When there’s an opportunity for your child to obey right away:

  1. Clearly state what you want them to do.

  2. Follow up by telling them to “Obey right away.”

  3. When they get it right, give them a smiley face sticky note to place on their bedroom door.

  4. When you get to a certain number of smileys or fill up the space, celebrate with a family movie night or ice cream!

BONUS: Stop by Waumba Land on Sunday to get your very own package of special smiley face sticky notes!
