What do we do when we can’t decide which step to take? Who do you like getting advice from? Whose advice do you find difficult to follow, and why?

Are you traveling on a long, perhaps boring road?

Did you teach? Have you learned? Now swap roles.
How do you get from one place to another by listening? Stand in the doorway with your eyes closed, and ask your family members to lead you safely to another room in the house by giving you instructions. You could follow up by playing a board game inspired by this book which we have created for you.
