Today’s Parenting Tip:
DECIDE: You can help your child understand his feelings.
PRACTICE: Today, search the internet for “feelings faces games.”
Either purchase a game you discover, use one available online, or get ideas about how to make a homemade version.
Play it with your child. Use the game faces to teach about feelings.
Ask what feeling your child would associate with each face. Tell stories about why a person might look (or feel) that way.
You can also have your child draw the faces and name them. This can lead to an even deeper understanding by the child.
Today’s Decide and Practice daily parenting tip was inspired by our featured picture book, PETE’S A PIZZA. 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.)
