Tone

Part of being a mother to young children and a fifth grade teacher is saying the same thing repeatedly. The tricky part of this is saying, “your coat goes on the hook” with the same tone of voice the first time and the fifteenth time. My goal is to transform my occasional snarky reminder into a supportive opportunity for critical thinking without sounding too cheesy.

How can I remember it is all about tone?
