Career Awareness. (6-20-14)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:   A lot of learning can happen in the summer.

PRACTICE:    Today, arrange for a field trip to a pizza parlor.

See if one in your area will let you and your child come behind the scenes and be able to talk to workers and see them doing their work.

In the kitchen, notice the amount of ingredients needed and what the the safety rules are.

When you interview the business folks, ask things like what they do all day and in what ways they depend on other people like suppliers, bankers, etc.

Be sure to talk to the customer service folks about how they keep their customers happy and what is most difficult about their jobs.

Don’t forget to take some time to eat some pizza and see what it is like to be a customer after seeing what goes on behind the scenes.

Talk over all that you learn that day and record it for sharing when your child returns to school. Art or writing projects are great ways to create “show and tell” items.

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.)
