    Thank you, Samantha. My 4 year old just starting interrupting our conversations and it’s never been an issue before. Her older sisters are good about waiting their turn, so it was kind of a surprise. I’m going to start doing this. Thank you!

    I love this tip. I work on the phone quite a bit and I have had to help my children understand I cannnot give them attention when I am on with a client. My method was similar but I also debrief with them after the call if they try to interrupt me to remind them of how we handle things while I am on the phone.

      Wonderful, Suz. Debriefing afterwards and preparing ahead of time are great ways to ensure it sinks in.
