Introducing the Keyboard
If your child bangs on the keyboard, which is a natural way to quench their curiosity of cause/effect, bring them through these simple phrases so they learn to respect the keyboard.
"We do not bang on the keyboard.
Do you think that makes the keyboard feel good? No! That's right! It can break.
Do you think it would be better if we tap the keys gently, like this? (demonstrate) Yes!
I knew you knew!! Show me how you do it gently. Yeah! Good job!!"
