Today’s Parenting Tip:
Decide: You will take the compliments you receive.
Practice: Mid-day, stop and think what you said when you received compliments today. How many times did you throw them away? (“Oh, it was nothing.”)
Make a list of all the ways you rejected them.
Tear the list up and choose to accept your compliments for the rest of the day.
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.)
