School Is Your Child’s Experience. (8-30-13)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

Decide:  School is your child’s experience.

Practice:   Think about the questions you asked your child about school last week. How much did he talk about school?

If he is not talking as much as you would wish for, pay attention to the suggestions in our post FIRST DAYS OF SCHOOL.

Make a plan to try some different questions next week. Pay attention to what questions work best for your child. Bottom line, give your child a chance to own his experience and not have to share every single thing.

Just make sure he knows you are available to talk – any time about any thing.

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.)

Read the whole story at First Days of School.
