Today’s Parenting Tip:
DECIDE: To put the spotlight on a preschooler.
PRACTICE: Today arrange to get the book, MY BOOK ABOUT ME by Dr. Suess for a preschooler who is important to you.
You can purchase it at bookstores or online and let the child own it – and, write in it, draw in it, and otherwise make it all his own.
If this doesn’t work for you, borrow it from the library and copy some pages for your child to write and draw on.
The book makes the child the star of the book and lets him think about all sorts of things that are just about him. It even asks for a self-portrait – a great item for a keepsake album or scrapbook.
Be sure to share the fun. Help him know what to do with the pages. Celebrate what he learns and shares about himself.
Share some things about yourself too as you move through the book with him.
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.)
