Making A List and Checking It Twice (12-1-14)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

Decide:    To learn what your child wants for a holiday gift.

Practice:   Help your child make a list of what he would like to receive for the holiday.

Talk to him about how many requests would be enough and what types of gifts are reasonable cost-wise.

If Santa is part of your holiday, your child’s list could be a letter instead.

If Santa is not part of the holiday, post the list on the refrigerator or in another obvious place. Or, you could ask to whom he would like to email the list.

Help him believe that it makes people happy to give him a gift.

Today’s Parenting Tip was inspired by the importance of traditions in children’s lives.

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.)
