Taking a Break from Growing Up (6-10-14)


Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:    To let your child take a small break from the pressure of growing up.    

PRACTICE:    Today, look for any signs that your child needs a break from the expectation to grow up.

Does she want her back rubbed, her hair combed, her favorite food? Does she want to be hugged or to play with toys from her younger days?

These are things that all children need once in a while no matter how old they are. They gives children a break from learning new things and acting more and more grown up.

It is important to meet children where they are and help them take a break from the pressures of growing up.

Cuddle them, pamper them, and let them act younger once in a while. Start today with your child or a child who is important to you.

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.)
