Teaching Your Child to Say Thank You (11-6-14)


Today’s Parenting Tip:

Decide:    To teach your child how to say thank you.

Practice:       Today, work with your child to write some thank you notes to people who have given him a gift or done something nice for him in the last month.

If your child is too young to write the notes himself, have him tell you what he wants to say and you write it for him.

Write it just the way he says it, so the receiver knows it is truly from the child.

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.)
