Today’s Parenting Tip:
DECIDE: You don’t need to persuade or coax children to follow your directions.
PRACTICE: Count how many times you say “OK?” today tacked onto the end of a direction you were trying to give a child.
For example, “It’s time to get dressed now, OK?”
What was your number for today?
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.)
