The Gift of a Story (11-7-14)


Today’s Parenting Tip:

Decide:    Stories can be gifts.

Practice:  Today, make up a story for your child.

Your story can get an important point across. For example, a story about how a teddy bear couldn’t find anywhere to sleep in a little boy’s room because it was so messy.

Or, your story can be about something especially interesting to your child. For example, a story about how a horse turns into a super hero.

Look for the delight in your child’s face. Most likely he will beg for more.

Stories truly are gifts.

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.)

Read the whole story at Birthday Parties, Part 2.
