A Brother or Sister Can Be Great. (2-28-14)


Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:   To help your child appreciate his siblings.

PRACTICE:       Today, have your child finish the statement, “The thing my sister (or brother) does for me that I love is _______.”

Talk about what your child says.

Talk about how special it is to have someone you can depend on for special things.

Give examples from your own life.

Ask if it is OK to share what your child has said with his sister (or brother). Share it, if you get permission.

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.)
