DECIDE: It’s OK to know what you need.
PRACTICE: If you are asked what you need today, force yourself to answer with a choice. Refuse to say “Nothing” or “I don’t know.”
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.)
