Make a Rules Chart (9-16-13)

today’s Parenting Tip:

Decide: Children need rules that have consequences.

Practice:  Think what has been bugging you about your child’s behavior.

Make a “rules” chart with your child about that topic. If the child is very young, use pictures.

Include what happens if the rule is not followed. For an older child give him a chance to help determine the rules and what will happen if each rule is not followed.

For more understanding about consequences take a look at Kids and Sharing,   Kids and Sharing, Part 2 or Sticking to the Rules.

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.)
