Giving Thanks for Quality Time (11-23-14)


Today’s Parenting Tip:

Decide:    To be thankful for the time you spend with your child.

Practice:  Today, do an art project with your child.

Make something you can use at a family meal – perhaps at your thanksgiving meal this month, if you are planning one.  If not then, perhaps at a weekend family meal.

You could make placemats, place cards, a menu, a picture of what your child is thankful for, etc.

When you compliment her on her art, be sure to tell her something specific about it. For example, “I love the colors you chose.” Or, “It makes me happy to see the fun faces you drew.”

Today’s Parenting Tip was inspired by the idea of being thankful.

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.)
