Your traditional girl, despite all her talents, is not a mind reader. She really, really wants to be a good girl, but if you don’t tell her exactly what to do in order to hear those magic words, she feels lost.
Give her clear, concise instructions on what you want done and exactly how you want it done. Keep the instructions brief. She shouldn’t need to write it down, she should be able to keep your instructions in her memory.
Once you’ve given her the instructions, ask, “do you have any questions?”
You need to ask this so that she can clarify anything you may have omitted.
Help her be a good girl. Be specific.
