Think. (10-30-13)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

Decide:   You can help your child think and feel at the same time.

Practice:   Make a sign: ”THINK.” Post it in your kitchen or other high-traffic part of your house.

When your child asks what it is or what it means, tell her it is a reminder that you can use your brain to tell you what to do even when you are very happy, sad, mad, or even scared.

Give her an example.


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.)
