Today’s Parenting Tip:
DECIDE: To make valentines with your child next week.
PRACTICE: Let your child help you gather the things you will need to make valentines together.
Mark February 9 on your calendar and make a sign for the fridge to remind your child of the date.
Over the next few days, you and your child can share a journal where you write down things you want to say on your valentines. If your child is young, have him tell you what to write when he thinks of something he wants to say.
Today’s Decide and Practice daily parenting tip was inspired by our featured picture book, EMMA’S QUESTION. 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 the Daily Parenting Tips page for easy access.)
