“What If?” (8-20-13)


Today’s Parenting Tip:

Decide:    Preparation can help calm fears.

Practice:   Play ”What If” with your child today. This is a game where you make up a situation for the other person to suggest solutions for. It encourages thinking about what you should do when faced with certain situations.

Today, make all the situations be school situations. For example, what if you have trouble finding your classroom?

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, OLIVER AND HIS ALLIGATOR.  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.)
