The children can do a task more effectively whenthe specific instructions are given. In case of my instructions, I missed specifying the details such as thetype of brush to be used or direction of the water to be applied to wash the car properly. My instructionswould be more effective if I added more specifications to it. Simple instructions are easily comprehensibleto the child.
