Today’s Parenting Tip:
Decide: You will collect as many compliments as possible.
Practice: Think about who you most like to get compliments from. Are they better from a close loved one than from someone you work with? Are they best of all from a boss? Do you believe another adult from than your child?
Once you have a sense of what you like more or believe more, ask yourself why. Then change your mind.
Decide all compliments are worth believing. Decide to collect as many as you can from as many different people as possible.
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.)
