Decide: You can give directions without asking “OK?” at the end.
Practice: Refuse to put “OK?” at the end of your directions to children today. The answer to “OK?” is yes or no. Only use it if no is an acceptable answer.
Today’s Decide and Practice daily parenting tip was inspired by our featured picture book, ELLA SARAH GETS DRESSED. Read the book to a child in your life each day as a reminder of what you are deciding and practicing that day.
Come back each day for another good parenting decision and how to practice it. (Each day’s activity will also be posted on Daily Parenting Tips page for easy access.)
