Decide: Dads play differently with kids than moms do.
Practice: Today, observe moms and dads playing with kids – or observe preschool teachers, coaches, babysitters, etc.
Do you see any differences between how men and women play with the kids?
If so, what are those differences?
Do the differences matter to the kids?
Is one way better than another?

Today’s Decide and Practice daily parenting tip was inspired by our featured picture book, BECAUSE I’M YOUR DAD. 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.)
