Thinking and Feeling (8-5-14)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:   You can think and feel at the same time.

PRACTICE:   Today, think about a time when you felt angry and were able to use your good thinking to deal with it.

Perhaps you removed yourself from a situation that was dangerous or perhaps you found a safe way to blow off steam.

Celebrate that you were able to think even when you felt so angry.

If your child is old enough and the situation is appropriate, share your experience with your child

Today’s Decide and Practice daily parenting tip was inspired by our featured picture book, THAT MAKES ME MAD!.  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.)
