Today’s Gift Idea:
Here is today’s gift idea tip inspired by our featured picture book, NURSE CLEMENTINE. Read the book to a child in your life each day as a reminder of what you are deciding and practicing that day.
November 5, 2013:
Gift Idea: Consider something special the child has been asking for throughout the holiday season – even if it is very simple and doesn’t seem like much of a present, remember it means something special to the child.
If you are buying for an older child who doesn’t ask (or pester) so much anymore, check in with his best friend about what he thinks your child might like – swear the friend to secrecy. Even if the friend doesn’t live up to the secrecy, your child will be appreciative that you went to such lengths to please him.
Come back each day for another good gift idea for this holiday season. (Each day’s idea will also be posted on Daily Parenting Tips page for easy access.) Read the whole story at THAT SPECIAL GIFT, PART 1.
