Download this PDF.
Print it on heavy paper or card stock.
Then glue a popsicle stick to the back.
Use this card when you simply cannot take one more question or interruption.
Just hold up the card and say, "NOT NOW."
(keep one in the kitchen + in your purse — wherever you like)
After flashing the card, take two breaths. Think a happy thought. Relax your shoulders. Then respond to your child within the hour to ask what they needed.
(You can use this at any age. And it works on adults, too!)DOWNLOAD
