Does Your Child Have a Special Interest? (6-11-14)


Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:    To learn about your child’s special interest.    

PRACTICE:    Today, think about what your child gets really excited about and wants to spend most of his time thinking about.

Music, sports, bugs, skateboards, cooking, drawing, etc.? Take some time today to learn about it. Read about it.

Talk to your child about it. Ask good questions that show you are learning from him.

Let him know you are impressed by what he knows and can do.

Think about how this interest affects how your child thinks and feels about the world around him. Does he see more of some things and not much of other things? Does he feel excited about and interested in what the world has to offer?

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.)
