DECIDE: When you are well taken care of, you can give better care to your children.
PRACTICE: Ask for help today.
When someone offers the help, accept it willingly. Relax and tell yourself, “You deserve the help.”
Thank the person.
Pass it on tomorrow by offering someone your help.
Today’s Decide and Practice daily parenting tip was inspired by our featured picture book, PHOEBE & DIGGER. 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.)
