Encouraging Your Child’s Curiosity (2-8-14)


Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:   To encourage your child to ask questions.

PRACTICE:   Today, gather some resource books so you can play a game with your child called, “What Do You Wonder About?”  Examples of resource books: a child’s dictionary, BIG BOOK OF WHY, 5000 AWESOME FACTS, EVERYTHING DOG, HORSE, or BUG.

Ask your librarian to suggest a few that answer questions children are interested in.

Plan to use what you gather, when you play the game with your child. Directions will be in the parenting tip for February 11.

It will encourage your child to get answers to his questions.

 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.)
