  • I tell them to look at me and answer yes or no. I find if they look at me it helps a lot.

  • Sometimes, it depends on whether or not they are in trouble! LOL

  • Sometimes. My 2nd oldest used to completely shut down when he had to answer yes or no. He would stand there and just space out. He doesn't do it anymore thank God.
