Today’s Parenting Tip:
DECIDE: To learn from a toddler.
PRACTICE: Meet a toddler where she is today. She can be your toddler or any toddler you know and care about.
Most likely she will be on the floor crawling to and fro. Get down on the floor with her.
If she wants to crawl, crawl with her. If she wants to touch, taste, and smell things, you do it right with her.
Think how the world is different when you are at her eye-level and when you taste, feel, and smell everything around you.
What is better about the world from there? What will be more difficult about the world once crawling turns to walking? What will be better?
Today’s Decide and Practice daily parenting tip was inspired by our featured picture book, GEORGE UPSIDE DOWN. 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.)
