in this case, my daughter turns 4 in a month - she has commented on the red light means can't have a snack several times already. she definitely gets the connection

Torben - to be clear since you re-tagged, this question isn't just about eating. See my last sentence. Perhaps even more importantly, I wonder if this approach is good for encouraging/discouraging other behaviors

in this case, the 3 year old turns 4 next month. she's getting to the point where she can understand longer term consequences en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stanford_marshmallow_experiment, and we want to help encourage that thought process. Most of the time we do look for immediate consequences, but in this case we want to emphasize the longer term impact of eating behaviors

comment What are some techniques for toddlers to develop and practice good listening skills?
Yes. I'm wondering if she will learn better if she can develop these skills in context that is less about "how do i avoid consequences". The first thing that came to mind is the game Mother May I. Teaches listening and obedience skills, but is also fun for kids.
