Telling Children to Think (5-30-13)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

Decide:           You can help children think even when they are full of happy, sad, mad or scared emotions.

Practice:         Use the word “think” as often as you can today with children, especially when they are full of emotion.  Ask, what do you think about this?  Tell them to “think” about something for a minute.

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.)
