Today’s Parenting Tip:
Decide: To believe that your loved ones want to give you a special holiday gift.
Practice: Make a list of gifts that would please you this Holiday. Share it with your loved ones.
How can you get it to your loved ones, who may not be in the habit of asking adults for gift lists?
You can email it with a message like, “I took some time to think about what would make a good Holiday gift for me. I would love for you to do the same thing and share it with me.”
Or if you don’t want to spread your list beyond your own household, you can quietly post it on the refrigerator or in another obvious place. No explanation required.
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.)
