Today’s Parenting Tip:
Decide: To give your child a holiday gift that encourages her to share.
Practice: Give a two-for-one gift. In other words, give two of the same thing.
When you give her the twin gifts, explain that one is for her and the other is for her to give to someone else – to share.
One thing that helps children learn to share is knowing that they have enough.
She will have one of her own. So, she should be very able to share and feel those good feelings that go with sharing.
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.)
