Today’s Parenting Tip:
Decide: Some of your compliments can be about how much you care about your child.
Practice: Give 5 compliments today to children you care about. Make them about how much you care for them. (“I want to have fun playing with you today.”)
Remember, these are not compliments the child earns. They are compliments deserved just because the child is a human being and all people need to be cared about.
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.)
