Today’s Parenting Tip:
Decide: To give a gift that keeps on giving.
Practice: For your child’s next special occasion, wrap up books (and CD’s) from the library as a gift – if your child is able to understand, without being upset, that this is not a keep-it-forever gift.
It’s a great way to stretch the gift budget. Your child will have fun opening the gift, and lots of fun for days after.
As you read the books to your child over the next days and weeks, explain that these books are a gift that keeps on giving. They are borrowed, and each time you return them you get to pick out more.
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.)
