Helping Your Child Make Amends (9-30-13)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

Decide: You can teach your child how to make up for hurting others.

Practice:Think back to a time your child hurt another child or broke something that belonged to someone else.

If you helped him make that up to the other person (other than just saying he was sorry), remember how you did that. If you didn’t help your child make it up to the other person that time, think about how your child could make it up when it happens again.

For example, he could have gotten bandages or offered a toy to play with. Make a plan to try the things you thought of the next time your child is in this situation.

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.)
