DECIDE: To get to know someone you have felt jealous of
PRACTICE: Review your December 2 practice in which you uncovered times you felt jealous. Today, ask yourself who the other people involved were?
Select one of those people to get to know better.
Arrange some one-on-one time with that person during which you can learn more about the person. For example, what she likes; what her future plans are; any challenges she is dealing with. Or, arrange to work on a project together at work, at church, or in the neighborhood.
Pay attention to the contributions she makes to getting the project done and making it a success. Also, accept any compliments she pays you during the project work.
After you have had the opportunity to socialize or work with this person, think about whether you trust her more.
Today’s Decide and Practice daily parenting tip was inspired by our featured picture book, SUKI AND MIRABELLA. 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.)
