Becoming Independent (1-24-15)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:       To let your child fix lunch.

PRACTICE:  Today, make a list of lunch menus that your child can fix for himself – or can fix mostly by himself. Post the list somewhere in the kitchen.

Let your child pick one of the menus from the list today and make it for himself for lunch.

As you have lunch together, celebrate what he was able to do for himself.

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.)
