Decide: You can help your child believe that it’s OK to ask for help.
Practice: Play “Asking for Help” with your child today. Take turns thinking of different ways you can ask for help in different situations. Make all the situations be school situations.
See how many different ways to ask for help you each can think of by taking turns. Write the ideas down and post them in an obvious place at home. Ask your child which suggestions she likes the best.
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.)
