Telling a Holiday Story (12-9-14)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

Decide:           To encourage your child’s imagination through storytelling.

Practice:         Today, create a round robin story writing.  One person starts the story by writing a sentence or two on a page and each person afterwards takes a turn to add another sentence or two one by one.

If both young and older children are doing the activity, let the young child dictate her idea about what happens next and have an adult or older child write it for her.

 If there is something you want your children to learn from the story, weave it in when it is your turn.  For example, have the main person in the story fail at something and not give up or do something very kind for someone else in the story.

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.)
