Playing to Win (6-27-13)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

Decide:          Your child can learn to be aggressive in competition without becoming a bully.

Practice:       Today, play a competitive game with another adult while your child watches.  Make it obvious that you are playing aggressively and really want to win.

If you win, talk afterwards to your child about how happy you are that you played so hard and that you are getting better at the game.

If you lose, talk about your disappointment and how aggressively you plan to practice to get better at the game.

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.)
