Feelings Can Be Good or Bad (6-20-13)


Today’s Parenting Tip:

Decide:           Any feeling can be good or bad depending on your reaction to it.

Practice:       Today, make a ledger on a piece of paper.  Label one side “Good” and the other side “Bad.”

On the “Bad” side, write a note about a time you were angry and did something you wish you hadn’t.

On the “Good” side, write a note about a time when anger was your motivation for solving a problem.

Repeat for other feelings (happy, sad, scared, etc.).  See if you can write about 10 different feelings.

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, KING ARTHUR’S VERY GREAT GRANDSON.  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.)
