Your Personal Power (1-2-14)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:   To accept your power.

PRACTICE: Make a list of all the things you have power over. And, while you’re at it, make a list of the things you do not have power over.

Pull out your list tomorrow and think about how true it is.

Do you really have power over all the things on the “Have Power” list? If not, move them to the “Do Not Have Power” list.

Do you actually have power over some of the things on your “Do Not Have Power List”? If so, move those to the “Have Power” list.

Do this analysis again each day for several days until you are satisfied you have the right things on the right list.

Celebrate the things you have power over. You are a powerful person.

Save your lists so you can continue to work on moving things around as you make new decisions.


Today’s Decide and Practice daily parenting tip was inspired by our featured picture book, WILLOW FINDS A WAY.  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.)
