During mealtime, We use the words “Strike 1, Strike 2, Strike 3 YOU’RE OUT!” to signal warnings about poor table manners.
We don’t usually offer the child a chance to come back to the table since we gave them 2 chances already, but sometimes we make an exception depending on the situation. When used consistently, the kids learn quickly that they need to eat politely or they will not get the chance to eat. I have liked it because it gives them several chances and reminders before a final consequence is given. Our kids exhibit much better behavior at the table when we are good about using this behavior reminder.
