Today’s Parenting Tip:
DECIDE: To give attention for good behavior rather than misbehavior.
PRACTICE: Today, think back to the last time your child misbehaved. Do you think she needed attention?
If so, make a list of ways you could give her attention that are not connected to her misbehavior. For example, special time with you or a chance to be the center of attention and show off her talents.
Use one of the ideas on your list with your child. It may prevent some misbehavior in the future.
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.)
