Today’s Parenting Tip:
DECIDE: You can learn to relax.
PRACTICE: Today, make a list of 4 ways you can help yourself relax.
Assign one of the ways from your list to each of the next four weeks and practice every day.
Be sure to share your experiences with your child. You can help her learn that relaxing is something you can learn to do with practice.
At the end of the last week, go back to your list and decide which ways worked best for you. Keep using those ways every time you feel stressed, especially when you are having trouble sleeping.
We would love to hear about successful ideas. They might help someone else. Use our comments section.
Today’s Decide and Practice daily parenting tip was inspired by our featured picture book, THE DREAM JAR. 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.)
