Think for Yourself. (8-18-14)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:   To think and feel for yourself.

PRACTICE:       Today, notice how many times someone tells you what he believes you think or feel about something – or what you should think or feel.

What was that like for you? How many times were they right?

How did you respond? Did it matter to you who was telling you – friend, relative, stranger, boss, employee?

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.)
