Putting Storytelling in the Parent Toolbox (9-9-13)


Today’s Parenting Tip

Decide:  Storytelling is a useful parenting tool.

Practice:   Today ask a family member, neighbor or family friend to tell you and your child a story about ….  Make it be about something that connects with a problem you are having with your child.

For example, “Tell me about how your kids went from fighting all the time to being good friends.”  Or, “Tell me about the time you couldn’t find Alex in the grocery store.”

When you are alone with your child talk about the story you heard together and what you think the point of the story was.

Today’s Decide and Practice daily parenting tip was inspired by our featured picture book, I WILL LOVE YOU NO MATTER WHAT.  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.)
