Powerful Children Ask for Help (1-26-15)

Today’s Parenting Tip:

DECIDE:       Asking for help is a powerful thing for your child to do

PRACTICE:   When your child asks for help today, tell her you are happy to help and are glad she asked.

Tell her that when she asks for what she needs, she is powerful.

Point out how easily she got you to give her some help. This is more powerful than yelling, whining, or throwing things when she needs something.

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.)
