Today’s Parenting Tip:
DECIDE: Grandparents have something special to offer your child.
PRACTICE: Today, talk to your child’s grandparents about a family food that has been special in your family. Use the telephone or FaceTime if they are not nearby.
Talk about the ingredients, how it is cooked, how it became associated with your family, and any special memories that are connected to eating or cooking it.
Consider turning this food into a Food Game. Consider including grandparents in creating the game.
If you don’t have grandparents available for this activity, you can talk to relatives, neighbors or friends who knew your child’s grandparents.
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.)
