Today’s Parenting Tip:
Decide: There is no such thing as “perfect,” “always” or “never.”
Practice: Pay attention to when you use the words perfect, always or never. When you catch yourself saying these words, stop and think – “really?” Can a person really be perfect? Is there anything that always happens? Can you promise never to do something?
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.)
