Today’s Parenting Tip:
Decide: You know how to be who you want to be.
Practice: Today, take the positive labels you posted earlier from the Daily Parenting Tip in our post Correct; Don’t Criticize (7-1-13) and add to them.
Write down when and how you prove those things are right about you.
For example, if one says you are smart, write down how you show you are smart. (“I did a smart thing today when I avoided a fight with my boss.”)
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 MONSTER WHO LOST HIS MEAN. 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.)
