Think for Yourself. (8-22-14)


Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:   To know what you know.

PRACTICE:       Today, notice how many times someone asks you what you think or feel about something.

What was that like for you? Was it easy or difficult to respond? Why do you think it was easy or difficult?

Was it different depending on who was asking you – friend, relative, stranger, boss, employee?

How often did you think or say, “I don’t know” or “I don’t care?”

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.)
