Dad and Halloween (10-13-13)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

Decide:    Your child should have special memories with her dad. 

Practice:   Today, arrange for Dad to get involved in the Halloween costume your child will wear.

If Dad can help make the costume, great. If Dad can dress up and go trick or treating with the child, great. But, at least get Dad involved in helping with ideas about what the costume will be.

If you are Dad, let your creativity shine. Remember what it was like to be young and have a chance to dress up and march around the neighborhood getting candy. Make sure your ideas are safe for the age of your child.

If you are not Dad, ask Dad if he will do this or arrange for some other important male to do it (Grandpa, Uncle, family friend, neighbor).


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.)
