We decrease frustration for children in a tough spot if we avoid using questions that imply choice when there is none. Better to use phrases like these when there is no choice: • Do you need some help to clean up that spilled milk? • We are going outside now. You put on your coat, or I’ll help you. • I need to put a few green beans on your plate. If you don’t want them, don’t eat them.
