Helping Children Like Who They Are (6-11-13)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

Decide:           It’s OK to like who you are.

Practice:         Use a mirror to play with a child today.   For babies, use an actual baby-safe mirror as a toy.  For older kids, play in front of a mirror (for example, dress-up, beauty parlor, catching a ball, gymnastics, dancing).

Tell the child how special, pretty, strong or impressive he is while he is looking at himself.

Let us know which tips you like the best or any others you think of that you want to pass along to others.

Today’s Decide and Practice daily parenting tip was inspired by our featured picture book, THE CHANDELIERS.  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.)
