Decide: You can fight some of your fears.
Practice: Today, think about a time when you overcame a fear.
How did you know it was OK to try to overcome it and not something so dangerous that you needed to just run away?Write down some of the clues that led you to face it straight on.
How did you overcome the fear? Write down the steps you took, including how long it took and whether you had any help.
If appropriate, find a way to share your experience with your child.
Today’s Decide and Practice daily parenting tip was inspired by our featured picture book, LET’S GO, HUGO! 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.)
