2014 Holiday Gift Idea #1 (12-3-14)


Today’s Parenting Tip:

Decide:    To give your child a holiday gift that shows all the ways you love him.

Practice:     Select two containers that will mean something to your child.

For example, a container that is a special shape (football, tiera, lego, soccer ball), one that is a favorite team’s colors, or one that is covered with bling.

Label one container: BEING. Label the other: DOING.

In the BEING container put slips of paper telling him what you love about him. For example, how fun it is to be with him or how kind you think he is.

In the DOING container, put slips of paper telling her all the things she does really well. For example, she does her chores well or is great at math.

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.)
