Names Matter. (7-5-14)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:   Names matter.

PRACTICE:   Today, think about why you named your child as you did.

Share those reasons with your child. Make sure she knows how important she is to you and how her name shows that.

For example tell her she was named after one of your best friends, who is one of the kindest people you know.

Tell her you can already see that she shares that with your friend. Tell her all the ways you see that she is kind too.

While you are thinking about this, what do you know about your name? Who could you ask?

Today’s Decide and Practice daily parenting tip was inspired by our featured picture book, MY VERY BIG LITTLE WORLD.  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.)

Read the whole story at Preschoolers – Who Are They? Part 1.
