Today’s Parenting Tip:
DECIDE: Art is important for school children.
PRACTICE: Today, contact your child’s school to learn how art is included in the school’s program at school.
Set up a time you can meet with his teacher to talk about your child and how he responds to art.
When you see the teacher, tell him what you have observed about your child and art. What does your child like the best? What does art bring out in him? Joy, concentration, pride, etc.?
Ask the teacher if more art could be done at school.
If you learn that the teachers need more help in order to offer more art at school, offer to help or let other parents know that help is needed.
Today’s Decide and Practice daily parenting tip was inspired by our featured picture book, MORRIS THE ARTIST. 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.)
