Decide: It’s OK to make mistakes as long as you don’t give up on making it right.
Practice: Think about a time you made a mistake recently. Think about what you did. Cover up the mistake so no one would know?
Walk away and give up?
Feel bad for quite sometime?
If you truly believed making mistakes is part of learning to do better would your reaction have been different?
How do you want to react the next time you make a mistake? Share your thinking with your child.
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.)
