Ways Children Get What They Want (6-22-13)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

Decide:           Your child can learn how to get along with others.

Practice:       Observe your child playing with other kids today.  Notice how many different ways he tried to get his own way – bullied, charmed, begged, bribed, negotiated, tricked, etc.

After playtime talk with him about what was working and what wasn’t.  Talk about why you think some things will work better than others.

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.)
