Grandparents Are Special (2-4-14)


Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:   Grandparents are special.

PRACTICE:   Today, have a talk with your child about her grandparents.

Ask her what she likes to do with her grandparents. Ask her why she likes to be around them. How do they make her laugh? Does she know their favorite color or favorite food? Their favorite game or vacation spot? Talk about whether any of these things are the same things that you or your child also like.

Are there things that you or your child “got” from grandparents – like red hair, dimples, a temper or a talent? Celebrate how lucky people are to have grandparents in their lives – or people who act like grandparents.

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.)
