Today’s Parenting Tip:
DECIDE: There are different rules for different situations.
PRACTICE: Today, talk with your child about “house rules” that are different from house to house.
What are the rules at Grandma’s house?
How are they alike or different from yours?
What about any differences between you and another parent, including a stepparent, if that applies?
How about differences at an aunt’s house or an elderly neighbor’s house?
Talk about what that is like for your child to have different house rules to manage.
Talk about why it is important that he be able to follow different rules in different situations. Use examples of when you have to follow different rules, even though your are all grown up.
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.)
