Being able to thing things through and realize an expected chain of events is an important skill for your child. Be sure to ask questions like "What do you think about that?" or "What do you think will happen if…?" Then be sure to really listen to your child's answers, too. You will benefit from this as much as your child because you will learn what and how you're your child thinks and how they process the information. That will help you communicate more efficiently as they grow older. When your child is comfortable communicating with you without fear of reprisal they can be more open and honest.
