Today’s Parenting Tip:
DECIDE: To encourage your child’s imagination.
PRACTICE: Today, video your child when he is pretending.
You can use your phone, iPad, or video camera. Show him your film.
Tell him specific things that you like in the film – the way he created his costume, the smile on his face, the way he acted out his part.
If you have a video of yourself pretending as a child, show it too. Talk about anything you remember about what it was like to pretend.
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.)
