Good Ways to Be Powerful (7-23-14)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:   To help your child see many good ways to be powerful.

PRACTICE:   Today, talk with your child about how people act powerful. You can use games, movies, books that he is familiar with as examples.

Put a few ideas on a list. Not more than 3-5 different examples for young children. You can use more for older children.

Cross out any idea on the list that puts down other people, hurts others, or uses power against others.  If the list has gotten too small, help your child think of some more things to add that show power used for good – without overpowering others.

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.)
