Accepting Your Power (7-16-14)


Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:   To accept your power.

PRACTICE:   Make a list of five things you have power over. And, while you’re at it, make a list of a few things you do not have power over.

Re-look at your lists sometime during the day and think about how true they are.

Do you really have power over all the things on the Have Power list? If not, move them to the Do Not Have Power list.

Can you think of any ways you actually do or could gain power over some of the things on your Do Not Have Power List? If so, move those to the Have Power list.

Celebrate the things you have power over. You are a powerful person.

Save your lists so you can continue to work on moving things around as you make new decisions.

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.)
