Thinking and Feeling at the Same Time (5-29-13)


Today’s Parenting Tip:

Decide:           You can think and feel at the same time.

Practice:         Every time you feel upset today, tell yourself “you can think and feel at the same time.” Then, think what you want to do about the upset and do that instead of acting on the emotions you are feeling.

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.)
