Decide: You can practice as much as needed to be successful.
Practice: Think of something you want to learn to do. Promise yourself you will be successful.
Today, make your first attempt to learn how to do it. If it is something you need a teacher for, arrange time for your first lesson.
Today, you can read about it or try some part of it on your own.
Tell yourself it’s OK to learn a little at a time.
Plan for multiple practice times on whatever time schedule that will work for you.
Share your experiences with your child and celebrate your successes.
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.)
