Stories Can Teach (1-15-15)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:    Stories help children see the importance of being able to DO things.

PRACTICE:   Today, ask your child to tell you a story about a person, animal, or thing that can DO something special, important, or fun. Tell him the main character can be real or pretend. When he’s done ask him what he liked best about his story. Tell him what you liked best.

Today’s Parenting Tip was inspired by our featured picture book, THE THINGS I CAN DO.  Read the book to a child in your life each day as a reminder of what you are deciding and practicing that day.

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.)
