Today’s Parenting Tip:
Decide: To help your child plan a real party.
Practice: Today, work with your child to plan a party for a friend or family member. Use the “rules” for good parties from “Birthday Party Rules” (10-19-14).
The number of guests that should be invited
How to invite guests so no one’s feelings will be hurt
What entertainment is just right and not too big and expensive for the occasion
What to tell the guests about the types of presents that are best for the occasion
This will be good practice for when it is time to plan a party for your child. He will understand some of the thinking that goes into the planning.
Today’s Parenting Tip was inspired by our featured picture book, CLEVER JACK TAKES THE CAKE. 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.)
