Today’s Parenting Tip:
DECIDE: Rules are necessary for all people.
PRACTICE: Think about how many times in the last few days, you knowingly broke a rule.
What was your reason? Did you convince yourself that the rule was no good or shouldn’t apply to you?
Would you want your children to know you broke the rule? If not, plan to act differently in the future and share with your child why you are following the rule, even though it is difficult to do so.
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.)
