October 5, 2013:
Decide: Children need soft and loving behavior from their dads.
Practice: Today, keep track of how often and in what ways your child was kissed, hugged, cuddled, soothed, etc. by Dad.
If you don’t see enough happening like this, talk to Dad and see if you can encourage more of this behavior. Assure Dad that men are very good at this, if they give it a try and get some practice.
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.)
